Chennai Consultation on Corruption
The Movement for Renewal and Reformation of Churches (MRRC) organised a two day consultation on 4 and 5 June 2013 with the support of Globethics.net India on the theme 'Commitments for Making Our Church Corruption Free - An Agenda for Synod 2014'. The consultation was organised in preparation for the Church of South India (CSI) Synod in January 2014 with 60 participants from the four southern states of Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, representing CSI dioceses, other churches, non-governmental organisations and lawyers. They discussed the role of different stakeholders – lay people, youth, bishops, church officials, etc. – in the fight against corruption as well as particular cases.
