Diálogos Anglo-Brasileiros sobre Direito e Religião

Hosted by Oxford Brookes University and the Universidade Federal de Uberlândia (Federal University of Uberlandia)

You are invited to

Participate in internationally hosted on-line seminars about law and religion


In presenting papers from two very different contexts, law and religion scholars from Brazil and the UK will provide a starting point from which to explore commonalities and differences between varying legal contexts. It is anticipated that this will stimulate discussion among participants to enrich an understanding of the legal systems in which participants are based, the status of religion within those legal systems and the relationships of religions and the adherents of religion to those legal systems.
