"This publication is the product of a larger partnership between JRS and the Boston College Center for Human Rights and International Justice. Sr. Maryanne Loughry, RSM, Associate Director of JRS Australia and a Research Professor with the Center, worked with the two groups to identify a project of mutual benefit. As the Center seeks to apply its academic and theological expertise regarding the human rights of forced migrants in practice-based settings, this partnership between a Jesuit university and a Jesuit-sponsored non-governmental organization in service to refugees was a natural, yet innovative, match. With the support of a grant from an anonymous foundation, it allowed us to convene a group of JRS leadership and staff members with a number of moral and social theologians at Boston College in October 2011. In it, there was an extensive exchange that aimed to build a bridge between theology and JRS’s work and which in turn provided the material, which is the basis of this publication, which provides meditations on JRS' values as witnessed through the real challenges facing the refugees that JRS serves"--Introduction.
