The Freilich Project is proud to support the upcoming international conference, Religion in Modern Education: Conflict, Policy, and Practice.

13-15 April 2023, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia

In democratic systems of modern society, education can be understood as a key site for the production of the citizens of the future. The training system is divided in the two types of public and private schools. The non-government organisations are often distinguished within the categories of secular and sacred groups. Meanwhile, education, which can take many forms, is also a key component of the reproduction of religious and spiritual systems.

The conference invites scholars to consider the immediate and enduring impacts that the value, consideration, accessibility, and format of religious education may have on religious practices, on public spheres of activity, and on the relationship between religion and society.
