Byse Workshop – Legal Debates over Secularism and Religious Freedom in Comparative Contexts

February 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
WCC 5052 Room

Today, it is clear that the secularization thesis, famous for its prediction of the decline of religion and of its elimination from the public sphere, has failed. Religion remains a force in the contemporary world keeping its hold not only on the private lives of individuals, but also tenaciously maintaining its presence in the politics of not only individual states but also of the international legal order. Yet, if the secularization thesis has failed, secularism — the constitutional structure built on (varying degrees of) the formal separation of religion and politics — has surely become an ineluctable condition of much of the modern world.

The result of this contradiction is that contestations over religion-state relations remains a protracted feature of our increasingly religiously and ideologically polarized world. This Byse workshop will explore the debates over religion-state relations in comparative contexts.

Byse Workshop – Urban Segregation and Inequality in Latin American Cities: A Local Government Law Perspective

February 7 @ 3:15 pm - 5:00 pm
WCC 3008

Although social scientists, policy makers and urban planners have analyzed urban segregation and inequality in Latin American cities, Local Government Law (LGL) can provide a new perspective on the subject, looking at the role of the law in producing segregation and inequality, as well as promoting solutions to those issues. LGL as a field studies the legal frameworks that national or subnational governments create for cities. Nothing that occurs at the local level escapes a superior law, either by action or omission. So far, LGL has been mainly used to analyze the relationship between cities and states in the United States, but has been an underdeveloped field in other areas of the world. We will expand this approach to analyze Latin American cities to see law in action, discussing how LGL affects low-income urban dwellers, and the ways in which they rebel, accommodate or negotiate upfront or in the shadow of the LGL in place.

With the workshop, we aim at connecting LGL to other disciplines that allow us to better understand how urban dwellers interact with the law. Likewise, we will examine the role of LGL in constructing and reproducing dynamics of urban segregation and inequality and how citizens respond to these processes. Finally, we will think creatively on how to create or use current LGL to diminish inequality and segregation in the cities. The workshop is of particular interest of HLS students who want to learn from LGL in action in Latin American cities, as well as students interested the law from urban studies and policy (GSD) anthropology (GSAS) and public policy (HKS).
