Current Issue: Volume 7, Issue 1 (2017) Religious Liberty
IntroductionThis 2017 edition of Solidarity: The Journal of Catholic Social Teaching and Secular Ethics is a special issue on Religious Liberty, and the first four articles of the issue were all originally presented at the successful conference on religious liberty held by the University of Notre Dame Australia Law School in August 2016. These first four papers have been formatted as per the conventions for Law publications and are thus slightly different in referencing style to Solidarity's usual Chicago style. The final article by Robert Tilley is the third article in a series he is publishing with Solidarity, the first appearing in Solidarity 3.1 (2013) and the second in Solidarity 4.1 (2014).
