For more than a century the National Secular Society has actively campaigned for separation of church and state – specifically, disestablishment of the Church of England. But today, the Church still retains considerable influence and power within the UK's political arena. The UK is the only country besides Iran to have religious leaders in the legislature by right, and the head of state is also head of the Church. Is disestablishment a lost cause?

In this online lecture, human rights barrister Geoffrey Robertson QC explains why disestablishment is essential for democracy in the 21st century, and how it might be achieved. He will recall the struggle to abolish England's blasphemy law, and looks forward to the effort to disestablish the Church of England before the coronation of Charles III.

For the first time, the National Secular Society will be holding the Bradlaugh Lecture online, and in partnership with Conway Hall Ethical Society.

Date and Time: On Tuesday November 03, 2020 at 7:00 pm (ends Tuesday November 03, 2020 at 8:30 pm)
