 Dear members,


You're most cordially invited to the ESCLH General Assembly for 2021 and to a Seminar with exciting new research presented by our colleagues at the University of Lisbon (Tuesday, 29 June 2021, 17:00-19:00 hours CET/04:00-06:00 hours PM GMT). Please find the draft agenda as an attachment to this email. As you will see, the Assembly is again online, because of the limitations Covid sets us. Due to these limitations, as you know we decided to postpone the ESCLH Conference again, to 22-24 June 2022, in Lisbon, but are hosting the AGM at the same time as the 2021 conference would have been.


To get a taste of what Lisbon has to offer, academically at least, this year's General Assembly is preceded by a Seminar:

Theology and Law: recent research and publications on the Iberian school of peace

Speakers include, Profs Pedro Barbas Homem (Faculty of Law), Pedro Calafate (Department of Philosophy), Margarida Seixas (Faculty of Law) and Ana Fouto (Faculty of Law). They will be speaking about brand new research based on manuscripts at the Universities of Salamanca, Coimbra and Évora from Portuguese and Spanish legal theologians of XVI and XVII century.


In the invitation, but also here you find a registration link (, by which you can register for the Workshop and/or the General Assembly 2021.

On the agenda is also the position of the Secretary General. The first term of Janwillem Oosterhuis as Secretary General (since 2016) is over. If you are interested in standing, please send an email to before Friday 11 June 2021. If there are any applications, you will be informed by 15 June of the list of elegible candidates.
