A Right to Freedom from Religion?

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.

A marginally revised version of this paper has now been published in Religious Freedom and the Law: Emerging Contexts for Freedom For and From Religion (edd. Brett G Scharffs, Asher Maoz and Ashley Isaacson Woolley), Routledge, 2018 (ISBN 978-1-138-55578-5).
