Cécile Laborde: Is the Liberal State Secular?


Cécile Laborde, Professor of Political Theory FBA, Nuffield Chair of Political Theory.

ABSTRACT

In this talk, I ask whether liberal legitimacy requires secularism – or separation between state and religion -, and which. I argue that the best way to answer this question is to ‘disaggregate’ religion into four constituent elements; and I argue that the liberal state is secular in four distinct senses. The aim is to identify a universal minimal secularism, one not tied to a particular western history of secularization, yet one that meets basic liberal democratic desiderata.
