The Economic Justice Network in Southern Africa is a project of the Fellowship of Christian Councils in Southern Africa (FOCCISA). FOCCISA consists of eleven National Christian Councils: Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Its objectives are:
* To increase and develop effective advocacy strategies and interventions on a selected number of priority issues affecting the region through joint conferences, seminars and workshops.
* To undertake relevant research on particular issues of concern to the EJN that can be used in advocacy activities of the National Christian Councils, EJN and partner organisation.
* To facilitate information gathering, dissemination and exchange within EJN and with partner organisations on the key priority areas (debt, trade and food security).
* To encourage economic literacy programmes by the Churches at all levels.
* To liaise with similar networks in Southern Africa and the continent and our International partners to collaborate on issues of global concern. [according to site editor's information]
