CONFERENCE

On October 9-10, 2020 will take place an interdisciplinary International Interdisciplinary Conference „Religious Freedom and Education”. The event will be organized as part of a Project „For the freedom to profess religion in the contemporary world. Counteracting the causes of discrimination and helping the persecuted based on the example of Christians”, implemented by the Center for Strategic Analysis of the Institute of Justice.

Religious freedom is a fundamental human right that lies at the core of the individual’s worldview. The goal set by the organizers for this conference is, among others, to answer to questions which are frequently asked in public space: to what extent religious freedom in education is and should be honored? How to balance it with the requirement of neutrality and other principles necessary in a democratic state? How can you integrate theory and practice? Most importantly, what can theorists from various fields of science learn from each other in this regard?

 

Please send abstracts by May 31 this year, along with the first and last name, degree and university affiliation to the email: educationconference@umk.pl. The abstract should not exceed 250 words. The organizers recommend that it contains a comprehensive summary of the article with objectives, background, method and conclusions. 15 minutes are provided for each speech. After submitting the abstract, the authors will receive confirmation of receipt of the abstract to email within two business days. The summary will be subject to double review by the Scientific Committee of the Conference, and the results will be sent to the author by June 21 this year. Participation in the event is free of charge.
