In December 2011, the Executive Committee of Pax Christi International accepted two new member organisations of its international Pax Christi network: (1) Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Desk – The Association of Major Religious Superiors in Taiwan (JPIC-AMRS Taiwan); and (2) El Servicio Paz y Justicia, Serpaj – Chile. That brings the total to 104 member organisations in Pax Christi International.
1. JPIC began in 1994 as a branch of the Major Religious Superiors in Taiwan, which is comprised of 100 religious congregations of men and women. Pax Christi International has a long relationship with JPIC-AMRS Taiwan through the organisation’s coordinator, Willy Ollevier, CICM. Current programme priorities are: peace and ecology, human rights. E-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
