Victoria: Religious Freedom and Tolerance in a Global Age

Rmit University

RMIT University, School of Global Studies will conduct a symposium on Religious Freedom and Tolerance in a Global Age on Monday, 4 May 2015 at RMIT City Campus.

The issues surrounding freedom of religion and belief and freedom of conscience are emerging in new international, national and local contexts.

Featuring a terrific line up of presenters, this unique symposium will offer attendees the chance to examine religious freedom and tolerance from a number of differing perspectives.

  • Acceptance and Tolerance in a Global Context: Models of Interfaith Cooperation
