Human Rights, Faith, and Culture

Association for Baha'i Studies Australia, 2001
As a contribution to this process of reflection, the Association for Baha’i Studies Australia hosted a 50th anniversary conference on the theme “Human Rights, Faith and Culture”. It is a theme particularly pertinent to our period of history in which the inter-relationship between belief, culture and human rights is at issue in both positive and negative ways. The papers presented at the conference provide much food for thought on these questions.
