• MercatorNet

This is what MercatorNet stands for: reframing ethical and policy debates in terms of human dignity, not dollars and cents or political calculation. We place the person at the centre of media debates about popular culture, the family, sexuality, bioethics, religion and law. MercatorNet isn't liberal. It isn't conservative. We don't want to be trapped on one or the other side of the culture wars. If you want a label, try "dignitarian". We believe in God (the editor is a Catholic), but defending human dignity is a task for people of every religion and of none.

Reimagining Europe

Reimagining Europe

A multidisciplinary blog hosted by the Church of England and the Church of Scotland with the editorial support of Crucible, the Christian Journal of Social Ethics. Reimagining Europe’s central aim is to create a space for Christian reflection and debate on Britain’s future relationship with Europe ahead of the forthcoming referendum on whether Britain should remain a member of the EU.


• Theos think tank

Screen Shot 2016-02-26 at 21.00.07  See report by Ben Ryan, "A Soul for the Union"Charts the development of the European project, from its origins in 1950s Christian Democracy, with a strong focus on solidarity and peace, through to its current period of crisis. It argues that today’s EU has lost sight of its founding principles, and places excessive focus on national economic performance. Ultimately, this  is a weak basis for political union. If the EU is going to be worth saving it needs to discover a soul.
