The Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice (CFJ) belongs to the Maltese Province of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuit order). It works to support activities aimed at promoting social justice, to reflect on, raise consciousness and seek solutions to social problems and injustice in the light of the Christian faith. The Centre has a practical commitment towards asylum seekers and refugees. Migration, and its darker dimensions of racism and xenophobia, is one of the priority areas of the whole Society of Jesus. The Centre is presently the national focal point in Malta for the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC). In this regard, the Centre is responsible for issuing a yearly RAXEN (European Racism and Xenophobia Information Network) report, in which local data on racism and xenophobia in the areas of employment, education, legislation, housing and Maltese society in general are collected.
