In a series of discussion panels, experts from academia, the media, and other professional arenas will debate the implications of the January 2015 Paris terrorist attacks on the scope and purpose of freedom of expression, the role of religion in society, and public security policies.

Panel topics include:
• the scope of freedom of expression from a comparative perspective, exploring in particular the tensions between freedom of expression on the one hand, and religious freedoms, human dignity, and public order and security on the other;
• freedom of expression in the media, and the protection of journalists from multiple threats, such as terrorism, governmental pressure, or economic dependency;
• the place and role of religion in contemporary European societies;
• changes in terrorism patterns and their impact on public security policies in general, and on anti-terrorism efforts in Europe in particular.
