11 April 2019: Research seminar - Wojciech Ciszewski - In search of an adequate structure of the state neutrality principle

We have the pleasure to invite You for yet another research seminar organized as part of the ‘BIOUNCERTAINTY’ research project. The subject of the seminar is ‘In search of an adequate structure of the state neutrality principle’ and it will be delivered by dr Wojciech Ciszewski from the Chair of Theory of Law of the Jagiellonian University. The seminar will take place on Thursday, 11th April, at 5:30pm (planned until 7pm) in room 25 of the Institute of Philosophy, 52 Grodzka Street.

ABSTRACT

Many people would agree that the state should stay neutral regarding worldviews adhered by citizens. However this general statement is a source of many questions and complications. How it is possible for a state to be neutral with respect to different worldviews? Who exactly is responsible for fulfilling this obligation? Does the state neutrality principle apply to all state actions or just some of them? How should we define a worldview in this context? In my presentation I attempt to answer some of these questions. Particularly, the subject of my talk will be the structure of state neutrality principle. I claim that every credible version of state neutrality principle should refer to four aspect of such structure. These are: the character of the principle, its object, scope and strength. In the concluding part of my talk I present the understanding of state neutrality which – in my opinion – is the most coherent and functional version of neutrality principle.
