Our mission

We engage with the Holy See across a wide range of foreign policy priorities, including global issues such as human rights, climate change, disarmament, the international development agenda and conflict reduction in fragile countries and regions . We also work on behalf of British Government Departments such as the Department for International Development.

The work with the Holy See is unique, because we do not only deal with a sovereign country (Vatican City State) but also with a global faith (the Roman Catholic Church, with 1.3bn adherents globally). Our work includes engagement with other Christian Churches such as the global Anglican Community and other principal world religions.
