Call for Papers: Rule of Law — Religious Perspectives
The Journal of Law, Religion, and State International Conference seeks papers on The Rule of Law — Religious Perspectives.
The encounter of religion with the rule of law may generate tension but also mutual inspiration. The rule of law implies law’s supremacy over other normative systems and personal commitments. It also implies that law applies to everyone equally. Religion represents a normative system that may in some areas be different from – and stand in opposition to – state law. Religion may deny the supremacy of state law and pose divine law as supreme instead. It may, alternatively, seek exemptions from state law in those matters where the two conflict.
