Georgetown University Brings on Cardus Senior Fellow for Work on Religious Freedom Research Project

GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY BRINGS ON CARDUS SENIOR FELLOW FOR WORK ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESEARCH PROJECT
Dr. Andrew Bennett adds international dimension to his work on Canadian religious freedom issues

February 9, 2017

OTTAWA – Cardus is pleased to announce that Dr. Andrew Bennett is expanding his work on religious freedom issues to the international realm. While he will retain his responsibilities as a Cardus Senior Fellow, Program Director for Cardus Law, and Chair of the Cabinet of Canadians, Dr. Bennett has also taken up an additional role as Senior Research Fellow at Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs.

As a Senior Research Fellow, Dr. Bennett will contribute to the research activities of the Berkley Center’s Religious Freedom Research Project, author commentaries on international religious freedom, and participate in the Project’s outreach activities.

“My religious freedom work at Cardus will continue to be focused on what is happening in Canada,” said Dr. Bennett. “But this new position gives me the opportunity to fulfill my long-held desire to support religious freedom internationally and to build on my experience gained when I served as Canada’s Ambassador for Religious Freedom.”

Cardus firmly believes Dr. Bennett’s work with Georgetown University will serve as a complement to our own work in Canada.
