Public Spirit is the new innovative on-line public forum for the discussion and dissemination of research into faith and public policy. Public Spirit will also feature articles and reports, from a wide variety of authors. Among them will be academics, politicians and individuals involved in faith and community based organisations. The aim is to make recent findings accessible and allow for reflections, analysis and stimulating conversation and collaboration.
Public Spirit aims to provide a space for researchers, policymakers, politicians and practitioners from the voluntary sector and community sectors to engage with the latest research. They will also be able to debate about recent developments in faith and public policy that crosses political affiliations and religious traditions. Public Spirit will also include thematic debates on current policy agendas; highlights of recent research findings; Comparative local analysis: a series of thematic discussions focusing on various areas of the UK; Notices of upcoming publications and events and a quarterly contents magazine.
The Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship at the University of Bristol will host Public Spirit from June 2013. The forum is linked to the religion and society project ‘Muslim Participation in Contemporary Governance’.Return to news list
