Organizers of an upcoming conference asked me to share information with blog readers who are welcome to attend!
The first-ever Fletcher School Religion, Law, and Diplomacy Conference is just around the corner on Saturday, October 31, 2015. The conference will bring together academics, practitioners, and religious leaders to demonstrate the role that religion plays across myriad issues, spanning security, conflict resolution, human rights, and civic engagement. The three conference panels — Security and Conflict, Rights and the State, and Politics and Identity — will provide a forum to discuss how religion affects these spheres and how an understanding of religious influences improves policy-making.
For anyone interested in attending, registration is free. Please visit the conference website to register in advance. This is one of two new student-led conferences this fall, along with the upcoming forum on Gender and International Affairs.
