IGE and Vietnam National University’s Law School will publish the first-ever textbook in Vietnam on religious freedom and law. This textbook addresses the great need for academic materials on human rights and religious freedom in Vietnam. It will be the first one written by Vietnamese scholars for Vietnamese students pursuing graduate-level studies in fields related to religion.
IGE’s Laos Program Officer Dr. Steve Bailey met with Lao government officials and religious leaders to review IGE’s work in the region. Dr. Bailey shared, “I feel encouraged by the collective efforts of our Lao government and religious leader counterparts to expand and protect religious freedom here.”
IGE stands as an active member and partner at the Ministerial because IGE believes that religious freedom matters for all people. IGE co-hosted two side-events alongside Christianity Today (CT) in order to describe more of why religious freedom matters in the domestic and global communities and how exactly IGE and others work to advance religious freedom.
