ICLARS is an international network of scholars and experts of law and religion.
It was founded in 2007 with the aim of providing a forum where information, data, and opinions could be readily exchanged among members, and disseminated to the broader academic community. To this end, ICLARS regularly organizes conferences and publishes a book series with Routledge , as well as a newsletter.
The first ICLARS conference was held in Milan in 2009. This was followed by conferences in Santiago (Chile) in 2011; Richmond, Virginia (USA) in 2013; and Oxford in 2016.
Proceedings from these events have been published by Ashgate and Routledge. Further information can be found in the ICLARS Newsletter, published at least three times a year.
From its inception, ICLARS has been open to all those interested in matters concerning law and religion, irrespective of political or religious standpoint.
Everybody is warmly invited to become a member of ICLARS, and also to send us suggestions and proposals concerning law and religion studies and research projects.
