ICLARS is an international network of scholars and experts of law and religion. It started in 2007, with the aim to provide a place where information, data, and opinions could easily be exchanged among members and made available to the broader scientific community. To this end, ICLARS regularly organizes conferences and publishes a newsletter.
The first ICLARS conference was held in Milan in 2009; its proceedings have been published by Ashgate. The next conference will take place in Santiago (Chile) in 2011. For more information, you can freely subscribe to the newsletter, published three-four times every year.
From its very beginning, ICLARS has been open to all persons interested in law and religion relations, without any political or religious preclusion. Therefore we invite everybody to become member of ICLARS and to send us suggestions and proposals concerning law and religion studies and research projects.
The website director is Cristiana Cianitto. Gerhard Robbers directs the Encyclopedia of States and religions and Rinaldo Cristofori is in charge of the "Who's who". Kurt Martens, Angelika Guenzel, and Maria Elena Pimstein are respectively responsible of the sections devoted to books, journals and links.
