How can we create a more just world?
From the Paris Attacks, the Syrian War, and the European Migrant Crisis to Brexit and the US Presidential elections, our responses to others in desperate situations have been tested. By looking at different religious and philosophical traditions, former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams and film maker and philosopher, Mary Zournazi explore how we can experience the world in a more just way, and how does love fit into all this when we are faced with difficult times.
