You are cordially invited to a meeting of the APPG on Conflict Issues

‘FAITH AND FIGHTING’

Is religion now at the root of the world’s violent conflicts?

‘The battles of this century are less likely to be the product of extreme political ideology – like those of the 20th century – but they could easily be fought around the questions of cultural and religious identity.’ Tony Blair, 25 January 2014

Is the former prime minister correct in his analysis? Has religion supplanted political ideology as the main driver of violent
conflict around the world? And if he is correct, what is the wisest way to respond politically, socially and religiously?

9 April @ 7pm

Committee Room 10 – House of Commons

On the panel:

The Rt Rev Lord Bishop of Coventry

Maajid Nawaz, co-founder of The Quilliam Foundation

Professor Richard Norman, Vice-Chair of the British Humanist Association

Chair: The Lord Alderdice (tbc)
