In Conversation with Ben Rogers and Bob Churchill

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance. 

                                                                Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Across the world today we find this right is increasingly violated, threatened and undermined, from every corner and through a variety of means: violence, legislation and restrictions. From terrorist groups in North Africa and the Middle East butchering 'non-conformists', to state suppression of religious plurality in Eastern Europe and the Far East, and religious intolerance in the sub-Continent.

To discuss the threat to religious belief - and to people who follow no religion at all - we are delighted to welcome:

Ben Rogers, a human rights activist from Christian Solidarity Worldwide with a particular focus on Asia; and

Bob Churchill, Director of Communications at the International Humanist and Ethical Union.

Please join us for what promises to be a timely and undoubtedly engaging event. There will be drinks and a networking reception to follow.

Location: RUSI, 61 Whitehall, London SW1A 2ET
