Reviews

“In recent years, the relevance of religious freedom is spreading well beyond academia, becoming a reference point for international relations, multi-level policy development as well as interfaith negotiations. Meanwhile, the scholarship on religious freedom has flourished at the boundaries of sociology, law, comparative politics, international relations, and systematic and empirical theology.”
