CSLR Research Projects

The Center for the Study of Law and Religion sponsors several research projects on discrete themes that have religion at their core but command the analysis of several other disciplines, not the least law and legal theory.  Most projects yield public forums and publications.  Larger projects are driven by a team of Emory senior fellows and scholars from other institutions; some consist of a series of multiyear initiatives, often with the generous support of both Emory University and external benefactors.

In Their Own Words

"Why does a liberal democracy protect the right not just to religious belief, but to religious practice? Once you discern the best case for protecting that right, another question arises: Should a liberal democracy protect the right to moral practice as well? And if we have the right to moral freedom, what implications might that suggest with respect to same-sex marriage?"
