From 09:00 – 10:30AM (EST) on Friday 2 December, Tony Blair and Senator John Kerry will join Professor Miroslav Volf and the students of Yale University’s Faith & Globalisation class to discuss the role of religion in liberal democracy.
Don’t worry if you can’t join them in person, you can tune in to this very special event online.
Watch it live here:
Recent events around the world, from the USA to Egypt show the impact that faith can have on politics and political movements.
Tony Blair will be arguing that, “we need religion-friendly democracy and democracy-friendly religion. The time has come to put away the delusions: that faith is diminishing; that religion is not really what it’s about; that a debate about politics can be seriously conducted in the 21st Century without debating religion.”
This is your chance to engage with two of the world’s most prominent politicians as they share their experiences and perspectives on the question – “What is religion’s proper place in a democratic government?”
I’m already looking forward to this special event – I hope that you can tune in too!
