The Von Hugel Institute at St Edmund’s will be holding a conference examining the relationship between Catholic Social Teaching and the coalition government’s ‘Big Society’ programme on Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th June 2012. The conference will examine the theory behind the ‘Big Society’ as well as some of its practical applications.

The Von Hugel Institute has been researching the relationship between CST and the Big Society as part of a project funded by the Plater Trust and a summary of our draft report will be presented as part of this conference.

The conference will bring together experts from a wide variety of fields including political theory, Catholic social thought, practical theology and public policy. It will be of interest to everyone involved in these fields and those interested more broadly in the relationship between Christianity and politics and society.

Speakers include: Lord Glasman, John Battle MP, Philip Booth, Clifford Longley and others.

The conference will be held at St Edmund’s College, Cambridge. For further details about the conference and a booking form please email vhi@st-edmunds.cam.ac.uk or go to http://www.vonhugel.org.uk/big-society-conference
