Pope Francis has been calling urgently to address social problems of extreme poverty, inequality and threats from global warming.

This unit examines responses of Pope Francis and other leaders to recent economic crises and extreme free-market views, often termed neoliberalism. The unit reviews world development efforts, especially the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and debates about growth and sustainability.

It also considers aspects of trade, aid and debt, as well as how to eliminate hunger, increase food production and manage population growth.
