Professor: Notre Dame Manufacturing in China Violates Catholic Social Teaching
Professor: Notre Dame Manufacturing in China Violates Catholic Social Teaching
11/30/2015 || The University of Notre Dame announced last month that it would begin a pilot program to manufacture University-licensed products in two Chinese factories, a move criticized as a violation of Catholic social teaching by a Notre Dame theology professor.

“The new policy violates Catholic social teaching,” wrote Associate Professor of Theology Todd Whitmore, who opposed the new program in a letter to the editor published in the November 5 issue of The Observer, Notre Dame’s official campus newspaper.

Whitmore, who has taught Catholic social teaching at Notre Dame every semester for the last 25 years, argued the policy specifically breaches “’the principle of cooperation with evil.’ In this case, the evil of denying workers their rights.”
