The Fifteenth Plenary Session of the Academy in 2009 was devoted to ‘Catholic Social Doctrine and Human Rights’, a topic inspired both by the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the desire to explore the challenges and dilemmas highlighted by Pope Benedict in his Address to the United Nations in April 2008. Coordinated by Archbishop Roland Minnerath and Professors Ombretta Fumagalli and Vittorio Possenti, the meeting began by reviewing the long reciprocal relationship between Christianity and human rights ideas. Then, mindful of the Holy Father’s observation in his UN speech that pressures are increasing to ‘move away from the protection of human dignity towards the satisfaction of simple interests, often particular interests’, the speakers examined the expanding catalog of human rights protection in an effort to discern how new rights claims are, or are not, conducive to human flourishing. Particular attention was devoted to rights that are currently under assault, such as the right to life, the right to found a family, freedom of conscience and religion, and to rights that have too long awaited fulfillment such as the right to decent subsistence. Then, building on the Academy’s studies of globalization and subsidiarity, the participants took up the question of the proper roles of states, private actors, and international entities in bringing human rights to life.
