Norms of Religious Minority Participation: Fields of Practice

Location | lieu: University of Victoria, Victoria, British Columbia / Université de Victoria, Victoria, Colombie-Britannique

Conference description | Description du congrès:

Norms of Minority Religious Participation is an international conference led by Avigail Eisenberg (UVic), Paul Bramadat (UVic), Pamela Klassen(University of Toronto) and Patti Lenard (University of Ottawa) about the place of religious minorities in four 'fields of practice' – healthcare, security, education and environmental assessments. The conference brings together scholars working in the areas of Political Science, Religious Studies, Sociology, and Law, with people with personal and professional experience in developing policy and implementing strategies for minority accommodation and participation. Participants will ask: How is religious/spiritual diversity managed in different institutional settings and associated fields of practice? Are strategies for managing diversity site-specific? Are there apparent best practices either within a field of practice or across fields? Do some fields have more proactive policies than others and why? How do governing institutions (either legislatures or courts) help or hinder good policy development within fields of practice?
