Talking Points on Report of the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief

Kristine Kalanges, Notre Dame Law School


To support the Holy See in its work at the United Nations, the Caritas in Veritate Foundation, in Geneva, Switzerland, and the Center for Catholic Studies at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota, collaborated in preparing reports on current issues discussed at the United Nations. The Terrence J. Murphy Institute for Catholic Thought, Law, and Public Policy, a joint venture between the Center for Catholic Studies and the School of Law at the University of St. Thomas, supports this collaboration, helps identify experts to draft these reports and, with the authors' permission, makes them available on its website. In 2013, this report on religious freedom was drafted in response to documents released for Session 22 of the Human Rights Council at the United Nations in Geneva.
