54th Meeting of the WCCs Commission of the Churches on International Affairs (CCIA) will take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on 27 February – 1 March 2017.

The Commission of the Churches on International affairs (CCIA) of the World Council of Churches comprises of 45 people nominated by churches and regional ecumenical organizations to advise the WCC. They are church leaders, pastors, laypersons and academics with expertise on areas relevant to the commission, usually meeting once a year.

The WCCs CCIA provides a platform for information-sharing and joint advocacy on critical situations and on opportunities to support initiatives for peacemaking, justice and overcoming poverty. It helps the WCC governing bodies identify challenges to the churches and to guide them to shape a coherent ecumenical response.
