The project The Future of Work, Labour After Laudato Sì served to equip Catholic Church-inspired and other faith-based organizations to respond in person-centered ways to the evolving labor market worldwide. The initiative, in the spirit of Pope Francis’ second encyclical, also promoted better global governance and increased knowledge of experience-based NGO practices.The Future of Work was a collaboration between the International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC), the International Labour Organisation and the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development.
The International Catholic Migration Commission protects and serves uprooted people, including refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced people, victims of human trafficking and migrants – regardless of faith, race, ethnicity or nationality. Founded in 1951 by Pope Pius XII, ICMC convenes a network of national Conferences of Catholic Bishops and other Catholic-inspired institutions worldwide. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, ICMC has affiliated offices in Brussels, Washington, D.C. and Boston and operational offices in Greece, Jordan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Pakistan and Turkey.
