Cole Durham: Freedom of Religion and Belief in Central Asia
Join The Fletcher School at Tufts University for a dinner conversation with Professor Cole Durham of Brigham Young University on the repressive policies of Central Asian governments toward religious expression and current opportunities for advancing religious freedom and human rights in the region. Professor Durham has worked on constitutional and statutory drafting projects throughout Eastern Europe and in most former Soviet bloc countries. He also served from 1997-2013 as a member of the Advisory Council on Freedom of Religion or Belief of the OSCE’s Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, and has been involved in constitutional drafting projects in Nepal (2011 and 2009), Thailand (2007), and Iraq (2005-2006). Dinner will be provided. Attendance is by registration only.
