Description

This report provides an account of how the individual's right to hold beliefs is understood, protected or denied throughout the world. Consisting of short edited entries based on drafts commissioned from experts living in the countries surveyed, it exposes persecution and discrimination in virtually all world religions. The book analyses United Nations standards of religion and belief and covers over 60 countries, divided into regions and introduced by a regional overview. Themes covered include: the relationship between belief groups and the state; freedom to manifest belief in law and practice; religion and schools; religious minorities; new religious movements; and the impact of beliefs on the status of women.
