Commission on Religion and Belief in British Public Life

The Commission has been convened by the Woolf Institute, Cambridge, and would welcome your views on the topics with which it is dealing, as outlined in the consultation document at

Very briefly summarised, the commission would like to know people’s views on the role of religion and belief in British public life with particular regard to media coverage of religion and belief issues, social action, developments in UK education systems, civil and criminal law, and dialogue and engagement. You are of course welcome to focus on topics and questions which are of particular interest to you – you are not expected to reply to each and every single question in the document.

Responses can be of any length and can be accompanied by copies of relevant documents. In its eventual report the Commission will acknowledge all the responses which it receives and will almost certainly wish to quote from some of them directly.

You are welcome to forward this message and its attachment to colleagues and contacts who might wish to respond, and to mention it in newsletters or bulletins, and to place it on the agendas of meetings.

Responses should please be sent by 31 October to or by post to the Woolf Institute, 12-14 Grange Road, Cambridge CB3 9DU.

Enquiries should be addressed to Mohammed Aziz, head of the Commission Secretariat.
