Dignity and Public Service: Autumn 2023

This autumn, the Westminster Abbey Institute examines the theme of dignity through the lens of public service. 
What does dignity mean in individual and institutional contexts? Where can dignity be found, and how can it be enriched, in the darkest of places and hardest of times? How can dignity be restored in contexts where it has been lost or denied? How can dignity be woven into policy-making approaches and outcomes? What can the Christian tradition contribute to this debate? 
In this series our speakers explore how public service can preserve, protect, and enable this most fundamental aspect of humanity.
