Cumberland Lodge is offering bursary places for PhD students to attend this two-day conference on faith and belief.

Faith & Belief 2040: Fostering Social Cohesion
23-24 April 2020
Cumberland Lodge

This conference explores how the ways in which people identify with faith and belief are changing. The conference aims not to define detailed solutions, but to provide a platform to:

  • Explore the opportunities and challenges that result from the current trajectory of change in the religion and belief landscape, in terms of social cohesion, state institutions and community life;
  • Consider what short- and medium-term steps might and could be taken by policymakers, faith leaders and religious communities, civil society actors and others to prepare for historical shifts by promoting shared values and inclusive visions of belonging, and to reflect on possible barriers to taking action;
  • Produce an expert Cumberland Lodge Report with key findings and recommendations, which will be refined at a Consultation and subsequently presented to policymakers, leaders, influencers, civil society and practitioners at a Report Launch in central London.

Cumberland Lodge are offering five bursaries for this conference, to support PhD students working in relevant fields with the costs of travelling to and from Cumberland Lodge. All conference costs, shared-accommodation and meals will be provided.

The deadline for applications is 12pm on Monday 16 March 2020.
