Strengthening the Global Ignatian Advocacy Network (GIAN) considered

gianGlobal Ignatian Advocacy Network (GIAN) has been around since GC 35.  A lot of work has happened since then and five networks have been formed: Right to education, Peace & Human rights, Governance of Natural and Mineral Resources (GNMR), Ecology and Migration.  These groups have met several times.  Many Jesuits from South Asia are co-opted as members in these core groups.  However, the core group members were at a loss because there was not much awareness about what GIAN is all about and who is to coordinate and how to coordinate these activities.
