The Faith & Belief Forum’s Tim Mortimer is joined by Dr Maryyum Mehmood, Professor Tariq Modood, and Dr Madeleine Pennington to discuss our new report on faith, belief and social cohesion. They examine some of the key developments in the UK over the past few decades, discuss good examples of local cohesion-building initiatives, and share hopes and ideas for the future.
The report was commissioned by the Faith & Belief Forum and the British Academy, and written by the think tank Theos.
