Multiculturalism and Human Rights - a Symposium in honour of Tore Lindholm

Tore Lindholm, associate professor and one of the pillars of the NCHR community, has turned 70. This is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the man, the teacher and the scientist - with a symposium. The topic of the symposium - Multiculturalism and Human Rights – is among Tore’s core research interests. As in Tore’s research a main focus will be on freedom of religion or belief.
