Donlu Thayer

Senior Fellow

Donlu DeWitt Thayer, following her retirement from Brigham Young University on December 31, 2019, has assumed a role as Senior Fellow for the International Center for Law and Religion Studies, where she was most recently Publications Director. During her more than ten years with the Center Donlu oversaw print and electronic publications, including the  building and management of the Center’s websites — the ICLRS website and its companion database, Religlaw, and the website and case table of the Strasbourg Consortium, which tracks the freedom-of-religion-or-belief jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights. Most recently she has developed the Center’s blog, Talk About: Law and Religion.  As Senior Fellow, Donlu will continue to manage the blog, and also to oversee the Strasbourg table and Law and Religion Headlines, a project she developed in 2012 and since has sent regularly to subscribers worldwide. She also continues to serve as an Associate Editor of the Oxford Journal of Law and Religion.
