For the 2016 Hook Lecture, (originally planned to take place last November) Lord Bhikhu Parekh came to Leeds to discuss the role that religion plays in today’s multicultural society.
Lord Parekh has helped shape the British understanding of multiculturalism and is now patron of the Commission for Religion and Belief in Public Life. In his lecture he explored the different ways that religion can play a positive role in politics and society, as well as some of the challenges that this raises.
The lecture was followed by a question and answer session.
