Interdisciplinary Summer School on Religious Freedom

Institute of Justice, Warsaw, Poland

July 19-24, 2020

Religious freedom means that no one can be forced to change, adhere to or refrain from a particular set of religious beliefs. It is a right to manifest religion through teaching, worship, practice or observance that accounts for the socially embedded nature of religious belief, and the profound linkages between this belief and its manifestations.

The aim of the Interdisciplinary Summer School on Religious Freedom taking place in July 19-24, 2020 in Warsaw is toform the foundations of knowledge necessary for academic commitment to defend religious freedom and to protect religious minorities against persecution.

The School is organized by the Institute of Justice in Warsaw, Poland - a state organisational unit subordinate to the Minister of Justice of the Republic of Poland. The Institute performs scientific and research activities in the area of lawmaking and the application, axiology and social operation of law.

The seminar will take form of interdisciplinary lectures and workshops. Classes are given by lecturers from the University of Leuven (Belgium), University of Navarra (Spain), University of Oxford (United Kingdom), and the University of Warsaw (Poland). On the last day of the School a Forum of NGOs working with religious freedom and religious persecution will take place. In addition to experts, short presentations on these topics will be given by conference participants: students, doctoral students, recent graduates and young scientists from various academic backgrounds.
