Workshop on Animals, Law, and Religion

Workshop on Animals, Law, and Religion

Harvard Law School
May 20-21, 2016


ILSP Director Kristen Stilt and Visiting Fellows Febe Armanios and Boğaç Ergene are co-organizing a scholarly workshop on the treatment of animals from Islamic and comparative religious and religio-legal perspectives. The goal of the event is to foster a conversation about how religious traditions consider the interrelated topics of animals, ethics, and law, with the aim of developing an integrated methodology from a comparative perspective. The event is planned for May 20-21, 2016, and will be the first in a series of events on this topic.

This workshop has now reached its capacity and is closed to additional participants. However, this workshop is one of many events the Animals, Law and Religion Project is planning, including events that will be open to the public.
