In 1900, only 25% of Catholics
lived in the global South--
Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
By the year 2000, that number
had shifted to nearly 70%.
Established in 2008 by DePaul University,
CWCIT is a leading center of interdisciplinary
research addressing this dramatic
demographic shift in Catholicism.
It seeks to be at the forefront
of the discussion about globalization
and the Catholic Church's future
as a truly worldwide church.
