Faith & Belief 2040: Fostering Social Cohesion Conference – Bursary places available for PhD students
This two day residential conference will take place on 23-24 April 2020 at Cumberland Lodge.
This conference explore how the ways in which people identify with faith and belief are changing.
Mindful of the scale and complexity of the subject, the conference aims not to define detailed solutions, but to provide a platform to:
- Explore the opportunities and challenges that result from the current trajectory of change in the religion and belief landscape, in terms of social cohesion, state institutions and community life;
- Consider what short- and medium-term steps might and could be taken by policymakers, faith leaders and religious communities, civil society actors and others to prepare for historical shifts by promoting shared values and inclusive visions of belonging, and to reflect on possible barriers to taking action;
- Produce an expert Cumberland Lodge Report with key findings and recommendations, which will be refined at a Consultation and subsequently presented to policymakers, leaders, influencers, civil society and practitioners at a Report Launch in central London.
The conference will be held under the Chatham House Rule in order to enable frank and productive conversations.
