Hans-Martien ten Napel writes article for LSE Religion and Global Society Blog

On 15 July 2019 Hans-Martien ten Napel started a new series on freedom of religion or belief for the London School of Economics research-led interdisciplinary Religion and Global Society Blog.

In his article entitled ‘The Natural Law and Natural Rights Tradition: A Foundation for Religious Freedom’, he discusses the Commission on Unalienable Rights which was recently established by the U.S. Department of State. This commission, chaired by Harvard professor of comparative constitutional law Mary Ann Glendon, ‘will provide fresh thinking about human rights discourse where such discourse has departed from our nation's founding principles of natural law and natural rights’.

The article written for the LSE Religion and Global Society Blog was partly based on a presentation given by Hans-Martien at the closing plenary panel of the conference ‘Global Human Rights at Risk? Challenges, Prospects, and Reforms’, which took place on 6-7 June 2019 at Campus The Hague.
