The CORAB Report – 2 Years on

25th January, 2018 @ 09:00

Ashburton Hall, Hampshire County Council Offices, Elizabeth II Court, Sussex Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 8TG

This timely event is a collaboration between the Hampshire Inspection and Advisory Service (HIAS) Religious Education team and the University of Winchester Centre for Theology and Religion in Public Life (TRiPL). What has been the impact of the CORAB report nationally and in the region? This event will explore this question and the report's challenges, especially in relation to education and consider the potential for connecting the findings of CORAB and  the work of the Commission on RE. CORAB spoke of our need, as a society, to learn ‘to understand and live with difference’. It set as a challenge to policy-makers the creation of ‘an environment in which differences enrich society rather than cause anxiety, and in which they contribute to its common good'. The Commission spoke of its vision for ‘a society at ease with itself in which all individuals, groups and communities feel at home, and in whose flourishing all wish to take part’. During our day we will consider how far we’ve travelled together towards this vision.  Presented by Patricia Hannam - County Inspector/Adviser RE, History & Philosophy, Justine Ball - General Inspector/Adviser for Primary RE - & Professor Andrew Bradstock Convenor of The Centre for Theology in Public Life (TRiPL), Winchester University.


Key Note Speakers will include :  Dr Edward Kessler MBE Vice-Chair of the Commission on Religion and Belief in British Public Life & Canon Professor Elaine Graham Grosvenor Research Professor of Practical Theology at the University of Chester.
