Religion and Economics Dialogue Group

This society’s program based on this “comparatively underdeveloped dialogue”, and means to extend the religion and science conversation to include economics by encouraging spiritual reflection in relation to economics and establishing a network of scholars, churches, and interested members of the general public. A series of public lectures are advertised widely, bringing together members of the academic and surrounding communities. Smaller workshops are offered to discuss readings and issues explored during lectures more deeply. Forums invite interested students from the three Canberra campuses to talk with the public lecturers, explore readings, and develop additional topics for discussion. A major international conference explores economics and theology, culminating in the publication of a book on the proceedings.
