ICLRS Participates in Strasbourg Consortium Meeting – Oxford, UK, 8 June 2010

The International Center for Law and Religion Studies was among the institutional members of Strasbourg Consortium to participate in a meeting of the Consortium held in conjunction with the Oxford Conference on Law and Religion, which took place 7-9 June 2010 at Balliol College, Oxford.  The Reverend Dr. Ralph Waller, Principal of Harris Manchester College, invited sixteen member representatives and leaders of the Consortium to convene a working meeting on 8 June at Harris Manchester. After dining and touring the HMC special collections library, the group, representing ten nations, met to consider additional ways to further the work of the Consortium and enhance collaboration in posting scholarly works to the website and engaging in serious public discussion of European Court of Human Rights religion and belief cases. Attending for ICLRS were Director W. Cole Durham, Jr., Associate Director Brett G. Scharffs, and Regional Advisor for the European Union and the Council of Europe Dr. David M. Kirkham.
