IDEAS Liberalism Conference - Liberalism and faiths: Do they go hand-in-hand?
IDEAS Liberalism Conference (19 Sep 2015)
Panel Discussion 2
Liberalism and faiths: Do they go hand-in-hand?
The panel will discuss the liberalism and faith, especially in a plural society. Will the greater freedom allowed in a liberal society such as freedom of speech, economic freedom and equality before the law lead to greater polarisation between different ethnic and religious groups? Can liberalism survive in a plural society? Is liberalism incompatible with faith and religion?
