About ICLARS

Welcome to the ICLARS BLOG. If you are looking for the ICLARS website, please click here.

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; Oxford (UK) in 2016 and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in 2018.

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.
