in conversation with Meryl Chertoff
Director of the Aspen Institute Justice and Society Program

Acrimonious public disputes over religious practices and the law have erupted with grim regularity in recent years, threatening America’s tradition of pluralism and tolerance. Many participants in these politically charged debates seem unaware of the long line of First Amendment Free Exercise jurisprudence. Participants at this roundtable will discuss some of the topics in our ongoing national conversation, including developments on college campuses, restrictions on religious garb, “anti-Sharia” ballot initiatives, and the siting of religious institutions.

Monday, October 24, 2011

This roundtable is part of the Justice and Society Program’s series Intersections: Critical Conversations on Law, Justice, and Public Policy, which aims to enhance participatory democracy and to focus debate on issues intersecting law and social policy.
