From the Research Desk is a regular check in with our research coordinator, Dr Teale Phelps Bondaroff, on some of the current projects that our campaigns teams are working on.
This week's talk will be on some of our work on charity law in Canada. We'll touch on how charities won the right to speak freely and why religion is a public good but atheism is not.
