Cooperation between Ordo socialis and Foundation


Upon invitation of the Board of Ordo Socialis, an exchange of information with the founder of Globethics, Swiss Prof. Dr. Christoph Stückelberger and the newly elected Executive Director Msgr. Prof. Dr. Obiora Ike, took place at the KSI in Bad Honnef in October. There has been a contact with Prof. Ike for many years. He is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of Ordo Socialis. Possibilities of cooperation and mutual support were probed in the talks. Meanwhile, this has resulted in an agreement of cooperation aiming at creating synergies and strengthening the implementation of objectives of the respective organisation. The cooperation agreement is rooted in the common goal of the partners to promote in higher education ethical ideas through digital solidarity building upon the respective abilities and competences of the partners.

Chinese Translation of Christian Social Teaching by Joseph Cardinal Höffner


In summer 2010, after a long period of preparation and difficulties, the Chinese Translation of Christian Social Teaching by Joseph Cardinal Höffner, financed by Ordo socialis, was published in Shanghai. Only table of contents, preface, introduction and chapter I so far could be accessed as a sample on our website. The Horae Publishing Company, publisher of this work, unfortunately does not exist anymore, nor can the Chinese printed edition be ordered. Therefore we are delighted to offer you as a free download the digitized version at In a collective volume, the published contributions “Economy from a Christian Perspective” by Prof. Karl J. Peschke and the “Entrepreneur” by Peter H. Werhahn will follow soon. (CST-Chinese)
