The common good and the role of the Government
@Church of St Mary Putney, Putney High Street, London SW15 1SN
Though the family and civil society have their own responsibilities for the common good, there is, of course, a role for the state.

The appropriate role for the state is contested even amongst those who are dedicated to the promotion of the common good. Some argue for a strong, centralised state that guides the economy and explicitly supports civil society and the family. Meanwhile, others prefer a decentralised model, rooted in the renewal of place, and in the revitalising of local and regional institutions. Others believe that only a more hands-off approach will allow civil society and the family the room, freedom and resources to flourish.

Our final panel in the series will investigate the role of government in promoting the common good – from ideas to action.
