On the 16th of June 2017, Leiden University will host a workshop organized by Dr. Berthe Jansen in the context of her NWO-funded VENI project “The interaction between religion and the law in Tibet”
This workshop on Tibetan Buddhists and the law will bring together scholars and experts who work on the way in which Tibetan Buddhists interact with legal issues. There will be talks on both the contemporary situation and the historical context. This workshop is open to a wider audience, consisting of students of Asian Studies and Religious Studies, Tibetan Buddhists (both Western and Tibetan), legal specialists, and the general interested public. While the main aim is to contextualize and discuss materials and ideas, we will not shy away from raising important political issues when relevant.The program with further details of the speakers, the presentation topics and the time schedule will follow shortly.
