    Abstract : Since their emergence in the late 19th century, national park spaces have been perceived as articulations of untouched nature or wild landscape beyond society.

Frederick Nolde; Commission of the Churches on International Affairs; Partition Plan for Palestine; history of political thought; Quentin Skinner; Hannah Arendt.;

    Abstract : Shrines and Souls provides a multi-layered contextualization of the article on religious liberty in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 18), which was propounded by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948. It shows how the framers of the Declaration decided to break with some of the conventional ways of framing religious liberty in international law, by foregrounding the inner freedom of thought and conscience instead of the free exercise of religion, by directly recognizing the right to change religion or belief, and by restricting the human rights framework to the rights of individuals.
