Social Justice Conference 23rd – 25th June 2016

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.
