The challenge of this discussion is for the Society to rearticulate its world wide mission in the context of the realities of our day.

The processes of globalization are having a profound impact upon the poor around the world. The Society of Jesus is being called to address this issue out of its global mission, acknowledging that Christ's own mission is global. How should the Society address these concerns which transcend province and even assistancy boundaries? What kind of cooperation and coordination is necessary?

How are those marginalized by globalization part of the Society's universal mission? The postulates mention the following situations requiring our attention: Africa, indigenous and discriminated peoples, migrants, refugees and displaced peoples, and the commitment for peace, reconciliation and human rights.
