Episode 15 of (Re-)Shaping Europe is out now! We spoke with Jochen Schlenk about religious freedom in the EU and the process of negotiation between European law, national law and religious law. Also about what a constitutional identity actually is, what the term world-view means – and what it is like to participate in interreligious-worldview dialogue as a non-religious person.
Jochen Schlenk is an editor for “Verfassungsblog” — an academic and journalistic open access platform for constitutional law. There, he produces the podcast “VerfassungsPod”. Jochen studied law at Humboldt University Berlin. Prior to his studies, he completed an apprenticeship as a carpenter. Jochen is a guest lecturer at Leuphana University Lüneburg. In the 2021/22 programme year, Jochen has joined our team and is now one of our religious-worldview advisors.
You can listen to the podcast episode (in German) via all relevant podcast outlets.

˝Thanks to DialoguePerspectives I have encountered inspiring people who have expanded, and also completely changed, my understanding of religion, engagement, and encounter. The interdisciplinarity of the programme combined with the high standards everyone holds each other to have made DialoguePerspectives a formative experience for me.
