The Iona Institute promotes the place of marriage and religion in society. Our starting point in debates about the family is that children deserve the love of their own mother and father whenever possible. We believe in the public funding of both denominational schools and other types of schools that reflect the wishes of parents in an increasingly diverse society. We also promote freedom of conscience and religion, and the right to life.
The Iona Institute is headed by religious and social affairs commentator, David Quinn.
