Church-State Relations in Europe and the United States. Narrating the encounter of modernity and contemporaneity.
A conference within the framework of the Chair for the Study of Religion at CERI

Can we still speak of a universal right of religious freedom or are national church/state patterns still dominant? Ferrari, Marzouki and Sullivan will converse about present realities in Europe (increasingly understood as a Mediterranean geopolitical space) and the US, focusing on how ancient words such as church, laïcité, and secularism are changing in the present age.
