Date: Saturday, October 13, 2018
Location: Ismaili Centre Toronto, Social Hall
Event Begins: 2:00pm
In a secular age that prizes individualism, how does the law “understand” religion – where community often comes first? Can liberalism be fair to faith communities when they resist the preferences of mainstream culture? The answers are explored by one of Canada’s leading legal scholars in this final onstage conversation in our series on “Citizenship, Identity and Religion”.
Professor Benjamin Berger specializes in the study of religion and the law at York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School, where he teaches constitutional and criminal law. He is the editor-in-chief of The Canadian Journal of Law and Religion. Berger is the author ofLaw’s Religion: Religious Difference and the Claims of Constitutionalism(2015), and co-editor of Religion and the Exercise of Public Authority(2016, with Richard Moon).
The conversations will be conducted by Dr. Amyn Sajoo
Hosted by the Ismaili Centre, Toronto
