forum panels will be organized together with the University of Louvain. As the results of these panels, we are planning to publish the Collective Monograph – a collection of articles "Promoting Common Good: Towards Sustainable Development of Society." The monograph will include articles of the leading scholars from the University of Louvain and the Ukrainian Catholic University. Common work will allow to present the ecumenical, international context of the Churches' social teaching and the vision of the integral human development in the global world. The publication will also help UCU scholars to join the global academic debate on an important issue, as well as deepen our partnership with one of the Europe's leading research-oriented universities.
