I have a new post on the Slugger O’Toole blog, reporting on the publication of the Open University’s ‘Religion, Security and Global Uncertainties’ Report.
The report is available in full.
OU’s Prof John Wolffe and Dr Gavin Moorhead are the principal authors of the report, which has been crafted through a series of interviews and roundtable discussions with academics, MPs, public policy officers, journalists, church minsters, school head teachers and representatives of faith communities, local community organisations and NGOs between October 2013 and January 2014.
I have been involved with the project throughout. Other participants from Northern Ireland have included Rev Dr Norman Hamilton, Prof Sean Connolly (Queen’s), Dr Neil Jarman (the Institute for Conflict Research & Queen’s), John Bell (the Institute for Conflict Research and UU), and Dr Duncan Morrow (UU).
