Religious diversity and the State—Who Governs?

Religion is generally considered to be an individual affair, but what happens when the internal rules and norms of religious communities come into conflict with those of the state? Professor Jeremy Webber of the UVic Faculty of Law will address these and other issues in a public lecture entitled “Religious Communities as Legal and Political Orders” on Thursday, Nov. 22 at 7 pm in the David Lam Auditorium. The lecture is the keynote address to the Governance of Religious Diversity in China, India and Canada conference, hosted by the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society and the Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives.
