A Rights-Based Economy Report

The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on the fundamental injustice at the core of our current economic model, which results in scarcity for the many, and unimaginable wealth for the few. The economic fallout from the pandemic and the inadequacy of governments’ responses to it are prompting more and more people to question the morality of an economic system which for decades has placed the market at the centre of all human interactions, measuring progress and development solely in terms of economic growth. In this publication, the Center for Economic and Social Rights (CESR) and Christian Aid – two international organisations working for human rights and economic justice – ask: what would it would look like if we had an economy based on human rights?

September meditation

Farming, cooking, carrying firewood: life was a constant struggle for Aster. Now she’s come together with women in her village, in Ethiopia, to open a shop powered by the sun. It's a thriving business and a resource for the community - it has sown the seeds of a better future. Stand together with our sisters and brothers in Ethiopia this Harvest, and give thanks for our global family, as we meditate on these words of the Harvest prayer.
