90 minute conference  |  Key Stages 4/5

Students are invited to think critically about responsible citizenship, as they explore true stories of Mafia gangsters, as well as the inspiring people who have resisted the ‘brotherhood’. The conference connects these Mafia stories to the promotion of British values by focusing upon the ‘rule of law’. It then explores five different ways of understanding evil and criminality that are seldom probed and analysed, looking at Buddhist, Hindu, Pagan Materialist, and Christian perspectives on evil and suffering.

This unique conference promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils in the context of both citizenship and British values.
