Our intellectual apostolate provides an inestimable help in setting up these bridges, offering us new ways of understanding in depth the mechanisms and links among our present problems... <br /><ul><li>It also encouraged networking:</li></ul>We encourage the Society’s government, at all levels, to explore means by which more effective networking might take place between Ignatian and Jesuit apostolic works.<br />

Enablingcapacitiesproject (2011-12)<br />General Objective<br />Create and develop the capacities of the five networks (thematic groups) comprising Jesuit social centres around the world and, wherever possible, other Jesuit institutions (Universities, pastoral centres included in the networks) so that they can respond effectively to the call of GC 35 to engage in advocacy, that is, to build bridges between those who have voice and shape public policy and those who do not.<br />
