The German Commission for Justice and Peace assembles the Catholic institutions and organisations which work on an international level on behalf of the German Church. Justice and Peace is their joint voice in society and politics and wants to draw the German public's attention to the world-wide issues of justice and peace.
Justice and Peace prepares Church statements contributing to the elaboration of German development, peace and human rights policies. It is involved in continuous dialogues with parlament, government, political parties and forces in society on these issues. It elaborates concepts for the Church's work on an international level.
