Pro Oriente


The establishment of permanent or non-permanent commissions is provided for by § 3 point 2, in combination with § 2 point 4g, of the procedural rules of the Foundation PRO ORIENTE. PRO ORIENTE establishes commissions if this furthers the aims of a project. This is usually the case when a project’s aims cannot be achieved by a single event and thus require a longer period of time, and if the participants remain basically the same.

The following commissions are currently tasked with handling focus areas for PRO ORIENTE:
Forum Syriacum
Commission for Southeast European History
Committee of Young Orthodox and Catholic Theologians
Standing Committee of the Oriental Orthodox Churches
Commission for Ecumenical Encounter between the Oriental Orthodox Churches and the Catholic Church

Section: Vienna
