Over the past 30 years the USCC and American Catholic institutions of higher education have developed mechanisms and institutes to teach the Catholic social tradition. Now is the time to create a formal way to measure the impact of the teaching and apply these best methods not only nationally, but become aware of what is replicable internationally. The proposal of the Center for Social Concerns is to create an international Catholic Social Tradition Research Lab for the University of Notre Dame to measure the application of CST throughout various global situations. Among our international partners for this CST Lab are the Council of Latin American Bishops (CELAM) with two Latin American universities, and five university partners in Europe: University of Salzburg, St. Hilda Chair at the University of Durham in the United Kingdom, Katholische Sozialwissenschaftliche Zentralstelle in Germany, University of Leuven in Belgium and King's College, London.
