Through mediation, arbitration, training workshops, research, conferences, academic courses, and consultations, the CCR assists both BYU and the community beyond campus in building skills and promoting understanding of peace, negotiation, communication, and conflict resolution.
International Center for Law and Religion Studies
The International Center for Law and Religion Studies was formally established and commenced operations as of January 1, 2000, to provide the institutional base for our long-term initiatives in the field of law and religion throughout the world. During the succeeding decade, we have emerged as a recognized leader in the field of religious rights, both at the national level in the United States and internationally. Work in the United States has included Congressional testimony in support of draft legislation and participation in numerous conferences in the U.S. Internationally, ICLRS personnel are now instrumental in organizing and participating in 20-30 regional conferences and law reform consultations each year in countries around the world.
