Our mission is to reflect on and contribute to the life, policies and practices of Europe in general and the EU in particular. JESC seeks an engagement which authentically expresses Christian faith, analyses social reality with competence, remains close to the poor and marginalised, and advocates for social and environmental justice in the European political structures and action. In a context in which the EU is undergoing profound challenges, questioning and crisis, JESC aims to be a critical but constructive actor of this project, in collaboration with a broad range of partners.

As an institution of the Jesuit Conference of European Provincials, JESC expresses the commitment of the Society of Jesus to a Europe where human rights, freedom and solidarity are the foundation of integration.
