(This paper was written for the September 2005 meeting of “Jesuit Communication in East Asia and Oceania” in Manila)

- Abstract -

"What I intend to do in here is to reflect upon the experience we have developed at the Taipei Ricci Institute during the past ten years or so. The underlying question can be summarized as follows: how did a Jesuit-run research center on traditional Chinese culture evolve into a network trying to build new lines of communication in China to help to redefine what is at stake in China today in the broader context of sustainable development and world governance issues to foster a sense of mission and urgency among Jesuits?"
