I was pleased to be invited to deliver a paper to the fourth conference of the International Consortium for Law and Religion Studies (ICLARS) in Oxford on 8-11 September 2016. The topic was Is there a Right to Freedom from Religion, and a video of my talk is available on line. In the paper – available here in pdf format – I take a generally sceptical view of the idea that there should be such a right.
