Restoration of the relationship between law and values – Ordo Iuris and Angelicum conference

Published: 19.12.2019

Ordo Iuris

The values which form the basis for law have a profound impact on modern Europe. This was the topic of the House on the Rock “Axiology of Law for the Europe of Tomorrow” Conference, which saw many prominent researchers engage in discussion in Rome. The event was organised by the Ordo Iuris Institute and the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas.

The conference was attended by scholars from different fields, including law, philosophy, ethics and economics, and the line-up included Prof. Chantal Delsol, Prof. Christian Hillgruber, Bishop Artur Miziński, MEP Beata Kempa and Dr Tymoteusz Zych, as well as popular Polish publicists – Paweł Lisicki, Grzegorz Górny and Łukasz Warzecha.

The conference was preceded by a Mass held at St. Peter’s Basilica by Cardinal Gerhard Müller, and was widely covered by Polish and Italian media outlets. The speakers discussed important topics such as the influence of Christianity on the development of law in Europe, the protection of the family by international law and the changing definition of human dignity. Also discussed were methods of effectively protecting human life starting from conception.

The conference ended with a working group discussion concerning issues such as the relationship between the Church and the state. Another topic was the Convention on the Rights of the Family created by the Ordo Iuris Institute, which is an alternative to the gender-based Istanbul Convention.

“The main topic of the conference was the axiology of law, which attempts to identify the connections between law and values. These values must be lasting and have a strong foundation to avoid being instrumentalised and having their meaning perverted. For us, Christian values are the foundation,” says Father Jarosław Krzewicki, one of the speakers and organisers.
