Guiding Principles

These principles are at the basis of all our work and courses.

Victims first

We base our reflection, commitment, and actions on listening to victims and survivors and learning from them.

Christian view of the human person

We value every human being as created in God’s image and act correspondingly.

Spirituality

We envisage safeguarding as a spiritual matter that directs us in our theological reflection and a faith-based response.

Cultural sensitivity

We honor the variety of cultures, engage in a critical dialogue and facilitate the culturally sound adaptation and implementation of safeguarding measures.

Multidisciplinarity

We look at safeguarding simultaneously from the perspective of various disciplines such as psychology, sociology, canon and civil law, theology, etc.
