We live in a time when human rights are a front-page topic. Human Rights Organizations focus on women’s and children’s rights, the rights of people with disabilities, the rights of refugees and indigenous people, the rights of education and religious freedom, and the right of all human beings to live with human dignity. In all this complexity of rights, what can be said about religious freedom? Is this freedom still important? We invite you to be part of this seminar to discuss why religious freedom matters.
