Religious Freedom and Equal Treatment: An International Look

at Brooklyn Law School
250 Joralemon Street
Brooklyn, NY

About the Symposium
How legal systems address threats to religious freedom, as well as the use of religious liberty claims to limit equal treatment, varies dramatically around the world. This conference will gather distinguished global experts from the academic and advocacy communities to discuss legal and advocacy challenges in different parts of the globe; offer new theoretical and doctrinal approaches to the potential conflict between these most fundamental individual rights; broaden the academic debate and develop new advocacy strategies; and build lasting cross-border networks among academics and advocates.   More info: http://www.brooklaw.edu/newsandevents/events/2013/10-11-2013.aspx

Dr. Michaelson will be speaking about the role religious forces are playing in Russia’s crackdown against sexual minorities.
