On Monday 14 December 2020, for the fifth year running, Nottingham Law School’s Centre for Rights and Justice will be holding its one day Flashpoints conference exploring themes which ignite debate in the field of Law, Human Rights and Religion. This year, we especially welcome submissions on:

  • Freedom of religion, healing and health
  • Freedom of religious expression
  • Historical Papers-particularly those relating the Mayflower Pilgrims
  • Freedom of religion, belief and children’s rights

As always however, we will be pleased to receive proposed papers relating to the wider theme of Law, Human Rights and Religion. In addition to the conference papers, we will include some space in the program for attendees to chat more informally and in smaller groups.
