Wholly living: A new perspective on international development

A report advocating for a holistic approach to development that goes beyond economics

2010 Available in English and French

As innumerable social studies have shown, happiness cannot simply be equated with wealth. Instead, a wide range of factors contribute to our sense of well-being, including the political, the communal and the personal. When our pursuit of economic well-being comes at the cost of these, our overall happiness is diminished.

This report shares ideas and policies that are both fundamental to the Christian idea of what it means to live well, and which can be endorsed by many who do not share the Christian faith.
