For your supplementary assessment, you are required to reflect on some of the challenges su
ounding the issue of torture.
You should focus on these two points in your reflection (which you can write in essay form or with subtitles):
1. Write a reflection explaining how the common good is challenged or negated by this issue (see the Reading below) locally and globally (approximately 400 words).
2. Propose two or three ways to address the challenge, as an advocate, in order to achieve a more just community or society (approximately 800 words).
In your answer, you will need to demonstrate your understanding of the Common Good and other CST principles.
NB: You are not required to make reference to all CST principles; 3-5 CST principles will be sufficient.
Pope Francis recently highlighted the importance of helping torture victims internationally. The 26th of June marked the United Nations’ International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. In the words of the UN Secretary General,
"torture remains unacceptable and unjustified at all times, including during states of emergency, political instability, or even in a war. On this day, let us also pay tribute to all those who stand in solidarity with victims and their families – and reaffirm our commitment to ending this abominable and useless practice." (António Gute
es, quoted at: http:
This International Day reinforces the work of the UN in confronting torture and other forms of treatment which are cruel, violent, degrading or inhumane.
The Pope reiterated the UN’s call for an end to torture: “cruelty did not end at Auschwitz, at Birkenau. Today too, people are tortured; many prisoners are tortured at once, to make them speak … It is te
ible! Today there are men and women in overcrowded prisons; they live – I’m so
y – like animals.” (quoted here: http: )
Such advocates are calling for outreach and support for all who have been caught in the cycle of suffering and abuse, even slow, painful death.
They are calling on international teams and organisations to work together, especially with the vulnerable in mind, and with rehabilitation as a priority.

Catholic Social Thought
\Catholic Social Thought (CST) is a body of thought on social issues that cover nine main areas of principles. It is continually developed through observation, analysis and action, and is there to guide us in the responses we make to the social problems of our ever-changing world. (New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference, 2010) This wiki is designed for students and presented in an engaging and presentable way. The nine principles are as follows:
Dignity of the Human Person
All human beings recognize the delicacy of life and how each human being ensures that even the most disadvantaged has access to the basic necessities of life and are able to participate in community activities and duties and that every human being has their own set of human and natural rights. (ACBC, 2016
Dignity of the Human Person
We as humans must understand and realize that our dignity is only reached to its full potential when we are in a relationship with others and the community. The Common Good recognizes that all human beings must contribute to life in society, and that they all must share and take account of the rights and benefits of other groups in the community. This principle shares the values of solidarity, justice, freedom and happiness into our lives and would then be harmonized. (Australian Catholic University, 2016, section. 4.1.1)
The principle of subsidiarity ensures participation of those among the community who engage in decision-making processes that empowers those that are involved and affected. (ACBC, 2016) It recognizes that the good of each individual person has their own specific goods in all areas of social and political organizations.
Human beings have both a right and a duty to participate in decisions that directly affect them and are able to actively shape their own destiny rather than by simply accepting the decisions of others....
