Lausanne Global Analysis 6, 1 (January 2017)

It’s a little while since I’ve linked to the Lausanne Lausanne Global Analysis, from The Lausanne Movement. The latest issue has a lead article on ‘A Caribbean Perspective on the US Elections: Five Key Areas to Watch’.

In the issue overview, editor David Taylor says:

‘In this issue we firstly focus on the impact of the US presidential election campaign and its outcome on Christian ministry in other parts of the world. In the light of the elections, we invited Lausanne leaders from several regions to comment from their perspective. We received some very helpful surveys as well as one more-than-full-length analytical article by Las Newman and Minke Newman. The arrival of the latter enables us to feature our first ever LGA article written from a Caribbean perspective. We have added to it ‘Voices from other regions’ as a postscript, with brief excerpts from three regional surveys. We also feature two articles on networks and partnerships, one focused on evaluation of their effectiveness, and the other on the growing Mahabba network. We conclude with a piece on artisanal and small-scale mining in the majority world and how Christians can make a difference.’

The executive summary is available here, and the full issue is available here.
