This international conference, organized by our Institute for the Study of Freedom of Religion or Belief (ISFORB), aims to draw up a state of affairs on FORB research in Europe. Three key challenges to FORB in Europe have been identified to receive particular attention: (a) (inter)national crisis situations; (b) religious nationalism and (c) secular discomfort with religion.
The conference will take place online in a modular format which will allow broad and flexible participation, plenty of room for discussion and diverse networking opportunities.
- Prof. Dr. Heiner Bielefeldt (University of Erlangen, former UN Rapporteur on FORB)
- Dr. Alexis de La Ferrière (University of Portsmouth)
- Dr. Tatiana Kopaleishvili (ISFORB/ETF Leuven)
- Dr. Jelle Creemers (ISFORB/ETF Leuven)
Other researchers join this conversation and present papers on each of these sections or related topics.
Participation at the conference is free, but we kindly ask you to register no later than May 4. Academically interested practitioners are also warmly invited to participate in the conference.
