Conference: Christian Social Teaching and the Politics of Money

Christian Social Teaching and the Politics of Money:
An International Conference on Religion and the Recession

9 and 10 July 2009
Senate Chamber
University of Nottingham

The working hypothesis of the conference is that there is there is a ‘middle’ position between an exclusively religious and a strictly secular perspective: faith can lead to a strong notion of the common good and a belief that human behaviour, when disciplined and directed, can start to act more charitably. There can also be secular intimations of this: the more faith-inspired practices are successful even in secular terms (more equality, more consensus, more human happiness, a better ecology), the easier it will be for secular institutions to adopt such a regulatory framework without having fully to embrace its religious basis.
