The Symposium - the first international conference of its kind - brings together researchers and practitioners from Australia, the United States, Italy and other locations to explore the vicissitudes of Italians and Italian identity in the transcultural spaces defined by mobility.

LIVING WITH DIFFERENCE: community, diversity and the common good

The Commission on Religion and Belief in British Public life was convened in 2013 by the Woolf Institute, which promotes the multidisciplinary study of relationships between Christians, Jews and Muslims.

The commission’s purpose is to consider the place and role of religion and belief in contemporary Britain, to consider the signifcance of emerging trends and identities, and to make recommendations for public life and policy. Its premise is that in a rapidly changing diverse society everyone is affected, whatever their private views on religion and belief, by how public policy and public institutions respond to social change. Under the leadership of Baroness Butler-Sloss the 20 commissioners – incorporating adherents of the main religious and belief traditions within the UK, including humanism – have met frequently.

They have taken evidence from a wide range of people, and have journeyed around the UK and through its social and economic, religious and cultural, legal and political, academic and educational landscapes.Their report sets out their main conclusions and recommendations.
