About

Societal Values is a website set up to explore the present reality and future policy options for UK society. As the name implies, the underlying focus is on societal values, both those that bind sections of the populace through common identity, but also those that create tension through separate identities, and how these forces feed into the dynamic engine of the national consciousness: an awareness of our rights and obligations, as individuals, communities and a nation within the community of nations.

Societal Values takes a non-partisan approach and invites contributions from across the political spectrum and from all walks of life. It publishes essays (with referenced bibliographies), articles, reviews and a section which features the arts.
