State Religions Arrangements in a Post–Western World:
A Cross-Cultural Dialogue on Freedom of Religion
This 2 day workshop explored the tensions between different ways of understanding religion and freedom of religion or belief. Discussions took place on the political and legal models of freedom of religion and the different models of State-Religions arrangements on which they are based. Starting from a typology of constitutional models existing in Europe, the seminar explored four sets of comparisons: Euro-Islam, Euro-Indian, Euro-Chinese and Euro-Russian.
