The University of Notre Dame Australia School of Law, Sydney is hosting its Third Annual Religious Liberty Conference on 29 November 2019.

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.
