MCE Research Centre

The Markets, Culture and Ethics Research Centre (MCE) of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross was founded in 2009 with the aim of studying in a systematic and scientific way the ethical aspects (social and individual) of economic and social life, in the light of reason and the Catholic faith. At the same time, it has an ecumenical and interreligious approach since social problems can only be resolved by a joint effort and in dialogue with contemporary culture. MCE’s academic activities are open to scholars and economic practitioners in all areas as they provide necessary elements for a true dialogue of faith with the world. MCE does not align itself with any particular school of economic thought, and it is open to all schools of thought as long as they are compatible with Christian anthropology, as expressed in the encyclicals, Centesimus Annus and Caritas in Veritate.
