Through the creation of the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology, DePaul University has established itself as a leading center for research and reflection on the church’s demographic shift to Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa, the so-called Global South.
“A primary goal of the center is to be at the forefront of the discussion about the relationship between the global Catholic Church and the forces of globalization,” says Peter Casarella, director of the center and a professor of Catholic Studies. “It’s an exciting time to have launched the center because by the year 2050, nearly 70 percent of the world’s Catholics will be from the Global South.”
