Chapter Summary

This appendix discusses the extracts from the socio-political chapters of Ecclesia in Africa. It mentions the Church's apostolate in the areas of education, health care, social awareness and in other programmes of assistance. The appendix addresses issues in Africa such as increasing poverty, urbanization, the international debt, the arms trade, the problem of refugees and displaced persons, demographic concerns and threats to the family, the liberation of women, the spread of AIDS, the survival of the practice of slavery in some places, ethnocentricity and tribal opposition figure by the Synod. The Synod Fathers were unanimous in acknowledging that the greatest challenge for bringing about justice and peace in Africa consists in a good administration of public affairs in the two interrelated areas of politics and the economy.
