On June 26th, a small workshop on comparative law & religion will take place with Dr. Jaclyn Neo (National University of Singapore, Law School). Jaclyn is a very well-published scholar in the field of comparative public law and human rights, particularly in the field of law and religion (see bio below). She studied at Yale Law School (LLM, JSD) and she is an Assistant Professor of Public Law at the National University of Singapore. She is an innovative thinker and a wonderful speaker. On June 26, Jaclyn will present one of her most recent papers and engage with her audience’s questions. Hans-Martien Ten Napel will act as discussant and Sofia Fernandes Da Silva Ranchordás will chair the workshop. Both colleagues and students are welcome!
You can register for the workshop by sending an email to Sofia, preferably by June 10. Should you be interested in presenting a recent paper, pitching your PhD research or discussing a new research idea on law and religion or freedom of expression so as to receive some feedback from an expert in this field, please let Sofia know. Due to time constraints, only 2-3 additional presentations can be accepted.

Last week I presented a paper during a conference on ‘Religion, Democracy, and Equality’, at the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia. The conference was organized by the International Consortium for Law and Religion Studies (ICLARS) and cosponsored by the International Center for Law and Religion Studies, Brigham Young University, University of Virginia School of Law, First Freedom Center and The Institute of Bill of Rights Law, William and Mary Law School.
The keynote speech by Prof. Heiner Bielefeldt, United Nations Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief, dealt with ‘Freedom of Religion or Belief: A Classical Human Right under Fire?’
For the full programme of the conference, a list of participants, as well as abstracts of the presentations, see the conference website at http://www.iclrs.org/index.php?contentId=2016&linkId=228&pageId=4.
