What does "religious freedom" truly mean? While religious lobbyists commonly use terms like "religious freedom" to demand privileges, this conference will serve to highlight that true "religious freedom" means freedom of belief for people of all religions and none. The conference will also explore the limits of religious freedom when it impinges on other human rights, including bodily autonomy, equality and freedom of expression.
We also presented our Secularist of the Year 2019 award at the conference. Secularist of the Year is an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding groups and individuals advancing secularism and related human rights. The 2019 winner was Saif ul-Malook; read more here.
