At the conference religion scholars from around the world will "share their insights and perceptions concerning the reaction and adaptation of individuals, religions and secular institutions to the growing diversity in many countries...The thrust behind the international nature of the conference is CESNUR [which is] dedicated to the preservation of religious freedom for all faiths."
