            Questions of religious liberty have become flashpoints of controversy in virtually every area of life around the world. Despite protection of religious liberty at both supranational and individual state levels, there are an increasing number of conflicts concerning the proper way... to recognize it, both in modern secular states, and in countries with an established religion or theocratic mode of government. This book provides an analysis of the general concept of religious liberty with a close study of important cases that serve as a test bed for proposals. It combines the insights of both pure academics and experienced practitioners in law to take a fresh look at the nature, scope and limits of religious liberty. Divided into three parts, the collection presents a blend of legal and philosophical approaches, and draws on cases from a wide range of jurisdictions, including Brazil, Poland, Australia, USA, Netherlands, and Canada. Presenting a broad range of views, this often provocative volume makes fascinating reading for academics and researchers working in the areas of law and religion, legal philosophy and human rights.

            Freedom of Religion in Indonesia: Renegotiating Islamic Thought and The Nation

            Freedom of Religion in Indonesia: Renegotiating Islamic Thought and The Nation (Hardback)

            Indonesia, widely known as the 'world's largest Islamic nation' and 'a tolerant' and 'democratic' nation, has been going through major changes in the post-New Order era. This era is known as 'reformasi' and is marked by the removal of President Suharto in May 1998. Reformasi rema...ins as a movement that is considered to be driving contemporary political change. This is despite the many failures of the movement's aspirations and goals. Corruption remains as a source of daily political controversy. The free media and freedom of expression has allowed for radical and antagonistic voices to prosper. Decentralisation has given governors and regional representatives the power to implement laws that limit the religious freedom of minorities. Providing an analysis of recent developments of religious freedom in Indonesia in relation to the study of Islamic thought and theology, Freedom of Religion in Indonesia discusses religious freedom with an understanding of the history of Islamic thought and how it has developed, changed and diversified depending on time and place.

            From the murderous reaction to the publication in a French satirical magazine of 'blasphemous' cartoons, to wrangles over the wearing of religious dress and symbols in schools and workplaces, the interaction between law and religion is rarely far from the headlines. Indeed, the e...ditors of this Routledge collection argue that, since the events of 11 September 2001, the short- and long-term implications of multiculturalism, religious resurgence, and extremism have dominated public life both globally and domestically. Consequently, they say, the legal framework concerning the regulation of religion has changed dramatically over the last decade or so. There have been numerous developments at the global, regional, state, and sub-state level, and these changes have been accompanied by an unprecedented number of high-profile cases affecting religious individuals and groups. Now, this new collection from Routledge's Critical Concepts in Law series, edited by two prolific authors based at the world-leading Centre for Law and Religion at Cardiff University, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to help researchers and students navigate and make better sense of an abundance of scholarship. With a full index, and thoughtful introductions, newly written by the learned editors, Law and Religion traces the field's development and highlights the challenges for future explorations. The collection will be valued by legal and religious scholars as a vital and enduring resource.

            This book analyses the promotion and protection of freedom of religion in the international arena with a particular focus on the role and influence of the US International Religious Freedom Act. It also investigates the impact of the IRFA on the legislation and policies of third ...countries and the EU. The book develops the story of the protection of religious freedom through foreign policy by showing how religious laws affect and shape a more communitarian dimension of the notion of freedom of religion which stands in contrast with a traditionally Western individualistic understanding of the right. It is argued that it is still possible to defend the unstable category of freedom of religion or belief especially when major violations are at stake. The study shows how the United States in recent years has shifted priority action from the promotion of religious freedom to the promotion of LGBTI rights therefore signalling a new parading of rights' promotion and protection particularly focused on the right to individual autonomy'. The book presents a balanced contribution to the academic debate on the promotion and protection of religious freedom. The comparative approach and interdisciplinary methodology make it a valuable resource for academics, students and policy-makers in Law, International Relations and Strategic Studies.

            Religion, Law and the Constitution: Balancing Beliefs in Britain

            Religion, Law and the Constitution: Balancing Beliefs in Britain (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            This book examines the existing constitutional and legal system in England, Wales and Scotland, through the prism of its treatment of religion and belief. The study encompasses questions of Church/state relations, but pushes far beyond these. It asks whether the approach to relig...ion which has spread out from establishment to permeate the whole legal framework is a cause of concern or celebration in relation to individual and collective freedoms. The primary focus of the work is the synergy between the religious dimension of the juridical system and the fundamental pillars of the Constitution (parliamentary sovereignty, the rule of law, separation of powers and human rights). Javier Garcia Oliva and Helen Hall challenge the view that separation between public and religious authorities is the most conducive means of nurturing a free and democratic society in modern Britain. The authors explore whether, counter-intuitively for some, the religious dynamic to the legal system actually operates to safeguard liberties, and has a role in generating an inclusive and adaptable backdrop for our collective life. They suggest that the present paradigm brings benefits for citizens of all shades of religious belief and opinion (including Atheist and Humanist perspectives), as well as secondary advantages for those with profound beliefs on non-religious matters, such as pacifism and veganism. In support of their contentions, Garcia Oliva and Hall examine how the religious dimension of the legal framework operates to further essential constitutional principles in diverse settings, ranging from criminal to family law. In a groundbreaking move, the authors also set the legal discussion alongside its social and cultural context. They consider how the theological perspectives of the larger faith traditions might influence members' ideas around the key constitutional precepts, and they include extracts from interviews which give the personal perspective of more than 100 individuals on co
