The Bellwether International Symposium on Bridging The Religious Divide

Utah Global Diplomacy hosted The Bellwether International Symposium on Bridging the Religious Divide, which welcomed leading global experts to explore critical questions about what religious freedom means in Utah, the nation, and around the world.

This symposium brought leading experts, academics, policymakers, researchers, authors, and activists together who explored the complexity and intersectionality of this topic through the following subthemes:

  • Deconstruction of the term “Religious Freedom” on a global scale
  • Preventing religious threats that lead to extremism in the United States
  • Building bridges across faiths by understanding and respecting difference
