Religion and Public Education: Italy and Switzerland as Case Studies A Dinner-Discussion with Dr. Bronwyn Roantree
We will start our discussion with the Crucifix case (Lautsi v Italy), decided March 2011, in which the Court found that the presence of crucifixes on the walls of public schools did not violate the right to freedom of education. We will then discuss that in tandem with a case from a few years ago, Dahlab vs. Switzerland, in which a teacher was fired for wearing a headscarf.
Wednesday, the 16th of November, 2011
Please arrive no later than 6.15 pm to serve yourself dinner
and be ready for the discussion at 6.30pm. Location: Leverett D-Entry Dining Room.
Spots are limited to 12. Please RSVP here.
