This report, the first of its kind yet to be published, provides a detailed and impartial account of how the individual's right to hold beliefs is understood, protected or denied throughout the world. Consisting of accessible, short edited entries based on drafts commissioned from experts living in the countries surveyed, it exposes persecution and discrimination in virtually all world regions. The book:
* provides an analysis of United Nations standards of freedom of religion and belief
* covers over fifty countries, divided into regions and introduced by a regional overview
* covers themes including: the relationships between belief groups and the state; freedom to manifest belief in law and practice; religion and schools; religious minorities; new religious movements; the impact of beliefs on the status of women; and the extent to which conscientious objection to military service is recognised by governments
* draws on examples of accommodation and co-operation between different religions and beliefs and identifies the main challenges to be overcome if the diversity of human conviction is to be established.

Book Details


First Sentence

"Religion is only one source of conflict in contemporary Africa, where many troubles are caused by other factors such as forms of neo-colonialism, the ambitions of war lords, or by a kind of ethic consciousness ('tribalism'), which is really a modern invention."
