Professor Durham participates in third Southeast Asia Freedom of Religion or Belief Conference - 7-8 November 2017

The third Southeast Asia Freedom of Religion or Belief Conference (SEA FoRB III) was held the 7-8 November in Manila, Philippines. Organized by the International Commission of Jurists, Boat People SOS, Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Forum-Asia, and the International Center for Law and Religion Studies, the conference sought to adopt a more hands-on approach and to involve wider participation from influential leaders and key stakeholders in the promotion of religious freedom in Southeast Asia. 

In addition to helping organize the conference, Professor W. Cole Durham, Jr. gave a presentation on “The Link Between FoRB and Freedom of Assembly and Association and Socio-Economic Progress” and led a panel discussion on “Links between Freedom of Religion or Belief and Nationalism.”
