Inequality and the Common Good

Inequality and the Common Good
Friday 23rd January 2015
LSE Faith Centre, London School of Economics

No system is perfectly equal, so when does inequality become exploitation? What does our status quo say about moral priorities and uses of power? This event and documentary screening in partnership between St Paul's Institute, St Mary-le-Bow Church, JustShare, and the London School of Economics Faith Centre will consider issues of inequality from a global perspective and consider how systemic failings can be overcome.

Organised to coincide with the 2015 Trinity Wall Street Institute conference entitled 'Creating Common Good: A Practical Conference for Economic Equality' - the event will include a live-stream conference session from New York with Archbishop Justin Welby, along with a screening of the documentary 'Inequality for All'.

The afternoon is split into two sessions that will be taking place at the London School of Economics (with separate ticket registrations):

14.30 - 17.00 Live-stream of Trinity Institute conference session: 'Is Inequality Sinful?'
(Room NAB 1.04 - New Academic Building)
The Most Rev. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

Panel (via web-cast): The Rt. Rev. Julio Murray, Rachel Held Evans, Jennifer Jones Austin, R.R. Reno

Post-stream Discussion led by: Prof. John Hills, Department of Social Policy LSE; Director of the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE)

17.30- 20.00 LSE Screening of the documentary film 'Inequality for All'
(Room NAB 2.04 - New Academic Building)
A documentary that follows former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he looks to raise awareness of the country's widening economic gap.

With introductory discussion.

These sessions are free and open to all - but registration is essential. A reception for participants will be held in the recently opened LSE Faith Centre, with further details circulated to those who register.
