Pepperdine's Herbert and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion, and Ethics will host, "A Call for International Religious Freedom," on Friday, February 25, at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. The keynote speakers will be Suzan Johnson Cook and Congressman Frank Wolf.
"A Call for International Religious Freedom" will explore the state of religious freedom and how we should respond. The conference will discuss how religious clashes are become more and more prevalent throughout the world, as well as examine the growing need for tolerance between faiths, particularly as the Muslim and Christian worlds collide. Throughout the day, panels will include topics such as “The State and Impact of International Religious Freedom,” “Foundations for Religious Freedom,” and “Responding to Religious Freedom.” We will also hear stories from witnesses who have experienced the struggle of religious persecution.
Specific panels and panelists are listed in the conference schedule. If you have any questions, please contact Lauren Hartley by email or by phone at (310) 506-6978.
