“ORDO SOCIALIS” (Latin for: social order) is a leading concept for Christian social teaching.
Under this title a number of important publications have been published. The fundamental rules of human social life on a personal, national and international level are always the focus. Ordo socialis has clear positioned relative to other social teachings, Marxism in particular. Much of the work published here derives from Natural Law and from experience and thinking chiefly in the Occidential-christian area.
