The Dialogue Society advances social cohesion by connecting communities, empowering people to engage and contributing to the development of ideas on dialogue and community building.
The Dialogue Society is a registered charity, established in London in 1999, with the aim of advancing social cohesion by connecting communities, empowering people to engage and contributing to the development of ideas on dialogue and community building. It operates nation-wide with regional branches across the UK. Through discussion forums, courses, capacity building publications and outreach it enables people to venture across boundaries of religion, culture and social class. It provides a platform where people can meet to share narratives and perspectives, discover the values they have in common and be at ease with their differences.
The Dialogue Society is not a religious or ethnic organisation. It aims to facilitate dialogue on a whole range of social issues, regardless of any particular faith or religion. It stands for democracy, human rights, the non-instrumentalisation of religion in politics, equality and freedom of speech.
Its flagship projects and events include the Success School, the Dialogue School, the Dialogue Studies Masters degree co-delivered with Keele University, Connecting Communities Circles, publication and distribution of its 10 Community Manuals and the Journal of Dialogue Studies.
