Christine Allen


Christine is the Director of Policy and Public Affairs at Christian Aid. She leads the department responsible for the global policy, advocacy and high level influencing. Tackling the causes of poverty, not just the symptoms, is central to what Christian Aid is all about. The department works closely across the organisation to ensure that their messages are effective, influential and coherent with the values and purpose of Christian Aid.

Before joining Christian Aid in June 2012, Christine Allen spent more than 10 years as Progressio's executive director and held key posts with Catholic organisations including CAFOD, the Justice and Peace Commission of Liverpool Diocese and the Catholic Housing Aid Society.

Christine also spent four years running the public affairs function at the National Housing Federation, the trade body for social housing landlords. She was an advisor to the Porticus Charitable Trust and was previously a trustee for Church Action on Poverty. She was a member of the livesimply executive for more than six years, helping to lead this ecumenical network of faith-based organisations encouraging people to live in solidarity with the poor.


Professor Craig Calhoun

Craig Calhoun has been Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science since September 2012 and calls it "the dream job for anyone who cares about social science, global issues, and bringing better knowledge to public debates". But it's frustrating, he says, because the students are so wonderful and his job doesn't leave him much time to be a teacher.

Coming to the LSE brought Professor Calhoun back to England, where he studied social anthropology at Manchester and took his D.Phil. in sociology and modern social and economic history at Oxford. In the US, he was President of the Social Science Research Council, and taught at the University of North Carolina, Columbia, and NYU where he was most recently University Professor of Social Sciences and Director of the Institute for Public Knowledge.

Professor Calhoun's many publications bring together theory and empirical research across several disciplines. Among his books on politics and social movements are Neither Gods Nor Emperors: Students and the Struggle for Democracy in China and The Roots of Radicalism. He has also published extensively on nationalism and globalization; secularism, religion, and the public sphere; economic and technological change; critical social theory; and the history of social science.

Describing his approach to academic work, Professor Calhoun says: "We must set high standards for ourselves, but in order to inform the public well, not to isolate ourselves from it."

Fiona Stewart-Darling


The Revd Dr Fiona Stewart-Darling has established the Canary Wharf Multifaith Chaplaincy from scratch in a unique and fast-developing business area in London. She has formed a chaplaincy team, developed productive relationships and networks with the Canary Wharf Group (the owners of the Canary Wharf estate), global banks and law firms, and put the chaplaincy on a secure long-term financial footing. She also developed good partnerships with local parishes, in both the Tower Hamlets and City Deaneries as well as across the Diocese of London.

At the heart of the work of the chaplaincy alongside providing good high quality pastoral care and spiritual support is to inspire and encourage people of faith, Christians in particular to understand what it means to serve and honour God in the workplace. How their faith impacts their working environment and relates to good values and ethics in their working practices in terms of: behaviour, actions, decision making and relationships.
