About this Conference:
The relationship between religion and anti-discrimination norms is increasingly prominent and controversial. Religious organisations and individuals both seek protection from discrimination but also, at times, themselves seek the right to engage in discrimination in the name of religious freedom.

The conference investigated the relationship between theory and practice in this area. In particular it looked at how and whether the principles underpinning  theories of religious freedom and equality have been reflected in judicial decisions to date as well as how practitioners are influenced by theory in litigating in these areas. The conference considered what theories the caselaw in this area reflect as well as possible future developments.
