COVID-19, Religion and Belief: Webinar Series || EPISODE 13: Canada, United States, and United Kingdom Perspectives
The Anglo-Saxon world has historically led in creating institutions to promote and protect freedom of religion or belief (FoRB). Today, COVID-19 is affecting several political and social transitions in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, which will also have an effect on the institutions promoting FoRB.
- How did the pandemic affect the transatlantic partnership as one of the leading drivers for the advancement of FoRB?
- With increased restrictions on travel and physical interactions, how can institutions effectively monitor FoRB violations, especially as they work to protect religious minorities in remote regions?
- Can the international community improve any of the existing FoRB instruments or initiatives in view of the lessons learned during the crisis?
