Governing religious diversity in Britain: good practices

Governing religious diversity in Britain: interesting examples

In this video, Tariq Modood illustrates how the Church of England has itself supported openness and the inclusion of other religious leaders in state ceremonies.

National ceremonies taking place in the Westminster Abbey have already at times included religious leaders from other denominations and religions such as Muslim Imams, Jewish Rabbis, or Hindu clergy. It could well be that in a near future coronation of a new King the ceremony would have a multi-faith setting rather than just being presided by the leading archbishops of the Church of England.

This is a good example of how the religious diversity of a given country can be incorporated into the state ceremonies in a positive, inclusive manner.
