Flashpoints: Human Rights; Law and Religion

Nottingham Law School’s Centre for Rights and Justice will be holding its one day Flashpoints conference exploring themes which ignite debate in the field of Law, Human Rights and Religion.
The year 1620 saw the voyage of the Mayflower, an event which has come to have iconic significance. At the cusp of the four-hundredth anniversary, issues of religious intolerance, displacement, emigration and persecution continue to be extremely prominent in legal and public discourse. With this in mind, proposals are particularly welcomed on the following themes: conscientious objection; freedom of religious expression; emigration, displacement and asylum on the grounds of conscience and religion; and historical papers.
Proposed papers relating to the wider theme of law, human rights and religion are also welcome.
