COVID-19, Religion and Belief Webinar Series

09 April 2020 — 09 July 2020

During the series, our guests will also touch on cross-cutting themes like the impact of the pandemic on levels of religiosity, on religious practice, on theological reflection and religious imagination, on faith-based humanitarianism, on religion and inclusion/xenophobia. The series brings together government officials, scholars, and practitioners to discuss the threats we face, and how we might respond to them and is in line with the mission on religion and innovation which is at the core of the activities of the Center.

The series is organized by the Cambridge Institute on Religion and International Studies, the Center for Religious Studies at Bruno Kessler Foundation, the Center for Justice and Society at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) Law School-Rio de Janeiro, the International Center for Law and Religion Studies at Brigham Young University Law School, the European Union Office of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the University of Siena.
