Blasphemy Codes in the Contemporary World

Shea, Nina

Each summer, the Hertog Global Strategy Initiative in the Department of History at Columbia University brings renowned experts and policy makers to Columbia University to deliver weekly public lectures and work with students in the program. The topic of the summer 2012 lecture series is "The History and Future of Religious Violence and Apocalyptic Movements." An international human-rights lawyer for over thirty years, Nina Shea joined the Hudson Institute as a senior fellow in November 2006, an entity which she had helped found in 1986. For over a decade, she has worked extensively for the advancement of individual religious freedom and other human rights in U.S. foreign policy as it confronts a resurgent Islamic extremist ideology, as well as nationalist and remnant communist regimes.
