| Three Conceptions of Religious Freedom
LDB President Kenneth L. Marcus contributes a chapter on “Three Conceptions of Religious Freedom” to Hanoch Dagan, Shahar Lifschitz and Yedidia Z. Stern’s new edited volume on Religion and the Discourse of Human Rights (Jerusalem, Israel: Israel Democracy Institute, 2014).
This book presents a series of case studies that examine the interaction between religion and human rights from various angles. Among other approaches, the authors investigate the possibility of using religion as a source of human rights and suggest a discursive framework for dialogue between a religious tradition and the human rights tradition. The volume includes essays by a number of other prominent scholars, including Christopher L. Eisgruber, Lawrence G. Sager, Leora F. Batnitzky, Suzanne Last Stone, Menachem Mautner, and Christopher McCrudden.
