Welcoming the Other: Equal Citizenship in Europe – the contribution of religion

EnglishEU_Council_FlagForthcoming March 27th I will be one of the speakers at a joint event between the European Council of Religious Leaders – Religions for Peace and the German federal state of Hessen’s Brussels office. It will be an opportunity to explore the mounting pressures attempting to limit freedom of religion and tolerance for others in Europe. The title of my lecture is provocatively entitled: “Religious practices and expressions: contradicting human rights?”

This will be another step in our interfaith effort to mitigate and counter the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe’s Resolution 1952, from the 1st of October 2013, which encouraged legally constraining religious circumcision. Some previous steps undertaken in this matter were described in a previous blog post.
