Fifteenth Annual Law and Religion Symposium being held at Brigham Young University.

The International Center for Law and Religion Studies at Brigham Young University will hold its fifteenth annual law and religion symposium, “International Protection of Religious Freedom: National Implementation,” at Brigham Young University on October 5-8, 2008.

This symposium will gather judges, government officials, and scholars from over 40 countries to address issues arising from attempts to implement international protections of religious freedom at a national level. Leading thinkers will address evolving international approaches and will present regional perspectives on emerging challenges to implementing religious freedom.

Because national implementation is where the most critical issues arise in providing practical guarantees for freedom of religion or belief, this topic is both timely and essential. National policy makers, judges, practitioners, and scholars will provide diverse perspectives on the successes and challenges faced by nations throughout the world in implementing this important right.
