What we do

Dikaios is an international network that provides advocacy for Religious Congregations in the lay world.
Just solutions.


Values in the service of Religious Congregations

The principles of fairness, transparency, social and environmental responsibility, both within a Religious Congregation, and in interactions with external entities, represent the Dikaios way. Dikaios advocates for Religious Congregations and Ecclesiastical Entities in the lay world. It does so by heading off potential issues at the pass, or by resolving conflicts once they arise. Dikaios handles both in- and out-of-court settlements and negotiations, working towards an amicable and peaceable resolution to problems. Dikaios’ mission is to help Religious Congregations, whether Italian or foreign, navigate the Italian legal system.
Just solutions.
