2018 Symposium on Religious Pluralism and Democracy

About the Symposium

Religious diversity is at the heart of ethical debates surrounding democratic culture, peace, and civil society. We live in a world in which religious pluralism is deeply contested. The escalation of violence against religious minorities threatens to undermine core democratic values of tolerance, respect for difference, and interfaith dialogue. This interdisciplinary symposium will engage the intersection of religious diversity and democracy from historical, legal, ethical, and peace building perspectives.

All events will take place in the UVU Classroom Building, Room 511
