June 5th, 6th and 7th, 2024 – Barcelona
The Chair on Religious Freedom and Conscience at the Ramon Llull University, established by the Blanquerna Observatory of Communication, Religion and Culture, is a research and dissemination space that studies the situation of freedom of conscience and religion in Catalonia.
The Chair is now organizing the Second International Congress on Religious Freedom and Conscience in Barcelona. It will take place on June 5, 6 and 7, 2024, in the Blanquerna School of Communication and International Relations, of the Ramon Llull University. The congress aims at the following:
1.- To share good local, regional, or international practices in managing religious diversity and promoting freedom of conscience and religion.
2.- To analyze the international standards for assessing the exercise of the right to freedom of conscience and religion, and the prevention of interferences or violations in this exercise.
3.- To create a debate among experts and international organizations on the international situation of freedom of conscience and religion, as well as on methodologies, categories and indicators that help analyze how these rights are currently being exercised, including a discussion on the concept of religion itself in a post-secular world.
The Congress will have simultaneous panels in Catalan, Spanish, or English. For any questions, you can contact us at email@example.com
