Freedom of Conscience and Global Security: Contemporary Legal Perspective
Law School

Freedom of conscience is one of the foundations of contemporary society. However, we have recently seen an increase in the erosion of the freedom of conscience through surveillance technology, religious discrimination, re-education camps, and other constraints that inhibit religious and other freedoms. This has weakened the freedom of conscience as well as the national and global security situation across the globe. Scientists and legal practitioners from different countries will soon gather in Vilnius to discuss freedom of conscience and related global security issues.

On 27th April (Thursday) International Scientific Conference with the title “Freedom of Conscience in a Time of Global (In)security“ will take place at Mykolas Romeris University (Lithuania). The speakers of this interdisciplinary conference will discuss freedom of conscience contemporary issues. Particular states, laws, and court judgments will be taken into consideration in order to find out how the freedom of conscience situation is changing and how it impacts the national and global security situation.

In the Conference, freedom of conscience themes will be discussed from literary, historical, religious, philosophical, and legal perspectives. Besides, the speakers will analyze legal regulation and case law questions related to freedom of conscience. This Conference will bring together experts from religious, political, philosophical, and legal fields representing Indonesia, Spain, the US, the Kingdom of Jordan, the United Kingdom, Qatar, Poland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, and France.
