Roundtable Chair

Religious persecution, in both breadth and brutality, is a growing problem across the globe. Governments are often the chief culprits in targeting religious believers and institutions, but more recent trends suggest that social hostilities – violence or harassment by non-governmental actors – have increased at a particularly alarming rate. The Religious Persecution and Religious Liberty Roundtable will examine the key indicators of persecution, explore the root causes of both government restriction of and social hostilities toward religion, and assess a range of responses to the problem of persecution. We will give special attention to myriad efforts to use public policy and other mechanisms to spread religious liberty protections to suffering believers.
