Christian Perspectives and Practices: A Focus on Constitutional and International Law
As a part of a 2020 Oxford Workshop on Human Dignity and Human Rights, scholars met to discuss Christian perspectives on human dignity as manifested in both constitutional and international law. Moderated by Professor Dmytro Vovk, law and religion experts from three continents gathered virtually to explore an approach to dignity-related issues through classic and modern Christian teachings. These scholars covered wide intellectual ground during their time together, presenting on topics that included religious freedom, refugee law, and anti-discrimination measures. Additionally, panelists considered the role Christian churches have played in legislation and judicial decision making both in national and international contexts.
Papers presented at the workshop will be published in a special volume of the BYU Law Review.
