The Consorcio Latinoamericano de Libertad Religiosa was founded in Lima (Peru) in 2000. It aims to be a “permanent reflecting and counselling forum to Latinamerican actors on the religious issue” and it is specially focused on “continental unity in the juridical criteria concerning the right of religious freedom and the relations between Church and State” (Acta de Constitución, Lima 22 de septiembre de 2000). Its members are scholars of different Latin American countries, such as law professors from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay; some scholars from USA and Europe also belongs to it as extraordinary members. The main association activity is the annual meeting; the last Colloquium (2007) was held in Bogotá, and the previous ones took place in Río de Janeiro (2006), México D.F. (2005), Santiago (2004), Buenos Aires (2003), Valparaíso (2002), Lima (Peru, 2000). The Mexican, Chilean and Peruvian proceedings have been fully published, the proceedings of the Buenos Aires meeting were partially published. A book on religious freedom in Latin America is forthcoming. In the Consorcio website there are some articles in PDF format, and a data bank on law and religion.

Debating Law & Religion Series
“Debating Law & Religion” is a monthly series aimed at creating a formal forum for invited speakers to discuss topical issues concerning law, its interaction with religion, and the role of religion in contemporary legal and socio-political systems. We do not shy away from contentious issues, and while our conversations are always respectful, we seek to encourage debate between speakers who genuinely disagree as to how we should answer the important questions of our day. Since the series began in 2011, we have conducted lunchtime discussions on such topics as the Islamic community center at Ground Zero in New York City, the legal bans on headscarves and burqas in France, the role of religion in public reason, the place of religion in ancient Roman and Hindu civilizations, and protections for hate speech directed at religious groups. We hope you will join us for our next debate!
