KAAD holds meeting with students who obtained scholarships at CCSM

Amman-en.abouna.org

The Catholic Academic Exchange Service (KAAD), the scholarship institution of the German Catholic Church for post-graduate students and scientists from countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Near and Middle East, as well as Eastern and Southeastern Europe, held a meeting on Thursday, October 1, at the Catholic Center for Studies and Media (CCSM) with students who have acquired scholarships for their postgraduate studies.

Marking KAAD's 60th anniversary and under the title, "Justice in the World and the Common Future", Dr. Nora Kalbarczyk, reviewed KAAD's achievements since its establishment in 1958 stating that KAAD presented over 9,500 scholarships for students who pursued higher studies in 70 countries worldwide.

CCSM Director Fr. Dr. Rif'at Bader, presented a review of his thesis titled, "The Philosophy of the Jordanian-Vatican Relations: Vision and Facts (1964-2014)" according to which he obtained his doctorate degree in political philosophy from the Lebanese University. He pointed out that there is philosophical and theological agreement between the foundations of the Christian and Islamic religions which led to the establishment of good relations between Jordan and the Vatican. He added that both countries call for respecting human rights and freedoms, foremost of which are respect for human rights including citizenship, respect for religious pluralism, as well as respect for public freedoms especially religious freedom, freedom of belief.

It is worthy to note that KAAD supports scholars in the form of scholarships and educational programs and offers spiritual and personal assistance in view of future multiplying functions of students in their home countries. This is based on cooperation with partner committees and associations of ex-scholars in those countries. It aims at setting up scientific networks and at contributing to a holistic development, which includes the religious and inter-religious dimensions.

During the 1950s, German Catholics opened themselves increasingly toward questions and concerns of the World Church, particularly organizations of Catholic laymen, and recognized the opportunities that could develop in this area from a dialogue with international students in Germany. On this background KAAD developed an initiative of the Catholic Congress in Fulda in 1954. Four years later it was formally registered in Bonn as a non-profit association.
