Lima, Peru -- A Publication on Religious Freedom

The Law School at the University of Piura has published a book entitled El derecho fundamental de libertad religiosa (The fundamental right to religious freedom). The book considers the situation of religious freedom in Peru from several different perspectives: its philosophical foundations, mechanisms for cooperation between the state and religious entities, and legal regulations, among others. This work had its origin in the Third Conference on Human Rights held in Lima and Piura in June 2014, organized by the Institute of Human Rights at the University of Piura. Dr. Susana Mosquera, editor of the publication, said that public authorities “should avoid putting undue restrictions on the exercise of this right, and facilitate formulas of accord and flexibility for people to express their relationship with God.”
