Jesuit Social Center Tokyo (イエズス会社会司牧センター (Japanese)) was established in 1981 by the Jesuits in Japan as a networking center on issues of socio-economic development and human rights. It serves as a liaison office for Jesuit social commitments and collaborates across Asia in pursuit of its vision. It sponsors lecture series and conferences and publishes the bimonthly Social and Pastoral Bulletin.
Jesuit Social Center Tokyo publicizes social problems and citizens’ movements through its bimonthly journal and sponsors lectures related to the Center's commitment. Its bimonthly Social and Pastoral Bulletin is published in Japanese and in English, and it disseminates information through other organizations. It helps with legal issues, as for migrants; does editing and translation work; organizes study groups, seminars, and conferences; and looks to conscientize especially among Jesuit and Catholic groups. Its concerns include the spectrum of human development issues, human rights, peace, ecology, and Catholic social thinking.
Its networking within Japan includes the following organizations.
- JAPA Vietnam: its members give private assistance to Vietnam.
- CANBOREN. Since 2003 this group has assisted Jesuit Service Cambodia with a variety of human development programs for the people of Sisophon in northwest Cambodia.
