Dates: 26th – 28th September 2023, LRC Auditorium – (Onsite & Virtual)
The Centre for Social Justice and Ethics (CSJE) at CUEA was established by the University Council on 8th May 2003 following Resolution No. IX-61 of the Association of Member Episcopal Conferences of Eastern Africa (AMECEA) 14th Plenary Assembly of 15th-21st July 2002.
Over the last 20 years, the Centre has empowered different stakeholders on social cultural issues to enable them advocate for justice and peace, human rights, social justice, and participatory leadership. It has been instrumental in the formation of ethical professionals who are guided by values, such as witness of life, prayer, truthfulness, honesty, excellence, commitment, competence, justice, peace, dignity, inclusiveness, quality, sustainability, integrity, responsibility, among others. In celebrating her 20 years of existence, the centre is determined to continue mainstreaming ethics, justice, and peace for Integral Human Development (IHD) in the society and institutions of higher learning. The desire to realise growth in various aspects of human life: social, cultural, economic, political, remain key characteristics of our world today.
