Training of Ministry of Defense executives on religion and laïcité (secularism) (France)

Quale provides training to civilian and military cadres of the Ministry of Defense in the application of the principle of laïcité (secularism) and the management of manifestations of religious belief, during four to six annual sessions organized by the Ministry's Management Training Center. During the training, the Quale trainer is often accompanied by a representative of one of the religions followed by members of the armed forces. These trainings provide an opportunity to clarify the principle of laïcité (secularism), and in particular the idea of religious neutrality, but also to examine related cases encountered by the training participants in the course of their duties.
