The University of Notre Dame Australia’s School of Law Sydney, will hold its Third Annual Conference on Religious Liberty in conjunction with its Annual Religious Liberty Lecture.
The University of Notre Dame Australia School of Law, Sydney is hosting its Third Annual Religious Liberty Conference on 29 November 2019. Held in the week of Red Wednesday (https://acnuk.org/our-campaigns/red-wednesday/) which recognises and focuses on religious persecution, the Conference will again be preceded by the Annual Religious Liberty Lecture which is now into its Eight year. The Eighth Annual Religious Liberty Lecture will be delivered this year by Monica Doumit. Monica is a writer and public speaker on issues of faith and its intersection with public life. Since October 2018 she has been the Director of Public Affairs and Engagement Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney. From August 2017 to January 2018 Monica was the Director of Communications for the Coalition for Marriage. Prior to entering the world of communications, Monica was a senior lawyer in the financial services sector. She holds degrees in Medical Science and Law, and a Masters of Bioethics.
The Conference theme will be on religious freedom and inclusivity asking what the term “inclusivity” means, how it is employed and how, if at all, it can co-exist with religious liberty which is usually structured around differences rather than homogeneity.
Whilst the Conference will have a focus on the developing and fluid contemporary situation for religious freedom in Australia scholarly works on the Conference theme in relation to experiences in other jurisdictions may be explored.
