WDF 7 Religion in Public Life

24 July 12

Press Release

Tony Blair, Rowan Williams and Charles Moore discuss religion in public life in Westminster

On Tuesday 24th July at 17.30 three major figures from British politics, media and the church gathered together to discuss the role of religion in public life in 21st century Britain. Before an invited audience at Westminster Central Hall, former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan William and former editor of the Daily Telegraph Charles Moore touched on many of the most pressing issues for contemporary society.

The event is the finale of the Westminster Faith Debates series, hosted by the AHRC/ESRC Religion and Society programme, Charles Clarke and Theos, which have been running since February. They are designed to bring the best academic research into the public eye, making the very topical debates on the role of religion in society more informed on subjects from extremism to multiculturalism, welfare reform to religious freedom.
