The objective of this panel is to discuss Freedom of Religion from a multi-disciplinary perspective, engaging sociologists, anthropologists and political scientists in analyzing this topic starting from the variety of socio-cultural contexts. The panel welcomes case-studies focusing on religious freedom within different socio-religious milieus and political regimes, considering new and challenging socio-cultural landscapes. We are interested in encountering how different models of secularism, the dynamics related to majority/minority status of religions and growing cultural diversity shape new perspectives and practices of religious freedom governance. The panel, organized by PhD fellows of the Joint International PhD Program in “Human Rights, Society and Multi-level Governance” at the University of Padova, seeks to encourage a growing attention to the social-scientific study of the relationship between Religion and Human Rights.
