•ICLARS International Consortium for Law and Religion Studies, see: http://www.iclars.org
ICLARS is an international network of scholars and experts of law and religion. It started in 2007, with the aim to provide a place where information, data, and opinions could easily be exchanged among members and made available to the broader scientific community. To this end, ICLARS regularly organizes conferences and publishes a newsletter. The first ICLARS conference was held in Milan in 2009; its proceedings have been published by Ashgate. The next conference will take place in Santiago (Chile) in 2011. For more information, you can freely subscribe to the newsletter, published three-four times every year. From its very beginning, ICLARS has been open to all persons interested in law and religion relations, without any political or religious preclusion. Therefore we invite everybody to become member of ICLARS and to send us suggestions and proposals concerning law and religion studies and research projects.
•ICLRS International Centre for Law and Religion Studies, see: http://www.iclrs.org/
The International Center for Law and Religion Studies was formally established at the Brigham Young University, and commenced operations as of January 1, 2000, to provide the institutional base for our long-term initiatives in the field of law and religion throughout the world. During the succeeding decade, we have emerged as a recognized leader in the field of religious rights, both at the national level in the United States and internationally. Work in the United States has included Congressional testimony in support of draft legislation and participation in numerous conferences in the U.S. Internationally, ICLRS personnel are now instrumental in organizing and participating in 20-30 regional conferences and law reform consultations each year in countries around the world.
•Centro de Libertad Religiosa – Derecho UC, see: http://www.celir.cl
The Centre for Religious Liberty – UC School of Law (“Centro de Libertad Religiosa – Derecho UC”, in Spanish) was introduced by the Pro-Chancellor of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (“Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile”), Monsignor Andrés Arteaga to the academic community in 28 October 2005. The Centre is established at the School of Law, and its creation was approved by the Faculty Council in 10 July 2006. The Centre is governed by a Committee, chaired by its Director (Prof. Ana María Celis Brunet), and two other members (Prof. María Elena Pimstein Scroggie and Prof. René Cortínez Castro, sj).
Besides the members who take part in the Committee, the Centre receives the collaboration of other academic and nearly ten undergraduate students of the UC School of Law.
The mission of the Centre for Religious Liberty – UC School of Law is the study, analysis and promotion of religious freedom as part of the dignity of the person from a legal perspective. The specific objectives of the Centre are: (1) The Study of the legal framework and jurisprudence (case law) of religious freedom at a national and comparative level; (2) The promotion of the religious liberty as a principle related to the Rule of Law; (3) The service of the Chilean Roman Catholic as far as the principle of religious freedom is concern, and the relationship between the Church and the state; and (4) The creation of an inter-religious dialogue between Christians and members of other faiths and beliefs.
