Applications Sought for the Inquiry on Law and Religious Freedom


How much religious freedom can governments allow? How much religious freedom do human individuals need? Is there an understanding of religious freedom that can be generalized across different places and traditions?

These are just some of the questions to be addressed by The Center of Theological Inquiry in the third year of interdisciplinary and international investigations, titled “Inquiry on Law and Religious Freedom.” The independent research institution, based in Princeton, New Jersey, is currently seeking applications that will pool expertise in theology, philosophy, ethics, sociology, anthropology, and legal studies. The project is supported by the John Templeton Foundation.

Applications are welcome from scholars in theology, legal studies, and related fields for four research fellows in legal studies, four research fellows in theology and related fields, and two junior research fellows. Princeton University’s Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) will participate in the selection process. The application window closes on December 15, 2013 and full details are available online.
