Fri 2 June 2017, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
Free to HSS members
In March 2016, Humanist Society Scotland published a report commissioned from the University of Glasgow Humanist Hub -, Religion in Scots Law (Edinburgh, HSS, 2016) compiled by Callum Brown, Tom Green and Jane Mair. This landmark guide to the place of religion within Scots Law is the subject of this one-day conference for HSS members to discuss the implications and to offer views on the direction of travel for the Society in the coming years. This will help to inform decisions that HSS must make about the future policy aims in regard to campaigning for change in Scotland. The aims of the event are:-
(a) To allow HSS members to reflect on the place of religion in Scots law, and to consider the future priorities for the Society;
(b) To suggest strategies for implementing change in regard to religion in Scots law in the pursuit of an equality agenda, freedom of conscience and community cohesion.
Speakers at the event will include:- Dr Brian Dempsey, School of Law, University of Dundee; Prof. Jane Mair, School of Law, University of Glasgow; Prof Callum Brown, School of Humanities, University of Glasgow; and Gordon Macrae, CEO of Humanist Society Scotland.
The Report and a Summary can be downloaded for free.
