Thu, 23rd Jun 2016 - 3:00pm to Sat, 25th Jun 2016 - 2:00pm

Challenging questions about social justice are being raised across all spheres of public life.  What aspirations do we have for social justice? Do our public policies reflect a set of values which could enable us to achieve a fairer and more equal society?

 

The University of Worcester and the William Temple Foundation are holding a conference to explore these issues in the contexts of faith, education, health, welfare, public policy, economics, gender and sexuality. Academic speakers from America, Australia, Israel, Canada and the UK will present on all these themes, led by 4 outstanding keynote speakers.

 

The Conference opens with a free public lecture in the Cathederal on Thursday 23 June 2016, 'Faith in the Public Sphere? - in search of a fair and compassionate society for the 21st century' delivered by Professor Chris Baker, Director of the William Temple Foundation and Professor of Religion and Public Life at the University of Chester.
