Panel organized by the research group DiReSom (Diritto e Religioni nelle società multiculturali) under the patronage of ADEC (Associazione Docenti Universitari della Disciplina Giuridica del fenomeno religioso)

The conscientious objection is traditionally linked to some contexts, as mandatory military service and abortion. Nevertheless, even if in some Countries those issues are yet discussed, there are also other emerging questions: as assisted reproduction techniques, same-sex marriages, mandatory health treatments, adoption of children by non-traditional families. In all these cases there are different rights in competition, as religious freedom, non-discrimination, health protection, best interest of the child, and others.

The panel will examine the topic of the conscientious objection from different points of view:
1. Theoretical basis of the conscientious objection and its protection;
2. The conscientious rights in religious laws;
3. The Jurisprudence concerning the conscientious objection;
4. Old and new shapes of the conscientious objection.
