Religious symbols and criminal law with speakers Peter Edge, Oxford Brookes University and Fábio Leite, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro

Anglo-Brazilian Dialogues on Law and Religion/ Diálogo Anglo-Brasileiro sobre Direito e Religião.

Hosted by Oxford Brookes University and the Universidade Federal de Uberlândia (Federal University of Uberlandia)

Participate in internationally hosted on-line seminars about law and religion

In presenting papers from two very different contexts, law and religion scholars from Brazil and the UK will provide a starting point from which to explore commonalities and differences between varying legal contexts.It is anticipated that this will stimulate discussion among participants to enrich an understanding of the legal systems in which participants are based, the status of religion within those legal systems and the relationships of religions and the adherents of religion to those legal systems.
