Prof. Movsesian in Prague (with Vaclav Havel)

Prof. Movsesian with Vartan Gregorian

Professor Mark L. Movsesian, Director of the School of Law’s Center for Law and Religion, recently served as a delegate at the Forum 2000 Conference, an annual gathering of academics and policymakers hosted by Vaclav Havel in Prague. His fellow delegates included Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, Prince Hassan bin Talal of Jordan, Economist Hernando de Soto, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili, and Carnegie Corporation President Vartan Gregorian.

An audience of over 3000 observers from around the world gathered to hear expert panelists and speakers present on this year’s conference theme, “Democracy and Law.”  Professor Movsesian participated in two panels on law and religion. The first, “Religion, Ethics, and Law,” asked whether secularization has led to a separation of law from morality. The second, “Religious and Secular Law,” dealt with potential conflicts between religious and civil legal codes.

More details about Prof. Movsesian’s participation in this important event, including videos and photos, are on the law school web site (here) and the Center’ for law and Religion’s blog, CLR Forum (here).

This is a wonderful recognition for Prof. Movsesian and for the Center for Law and Religion.  Congratulations, Mark!
