Law and Religion in the 21st Century: Relations between States and Religious Communities
Silvio Ferrari and Rinaldo Cristofori, eds.
The work is designed as “a valuable resource for academics, students and policy-makers with an interest in the interaction between law and religion.” From the Ashgate website: “This book brings together leading international scholars of law and religion to provide an overview of current issues in State-religion relations. The first part of the collection offers a picture of recent developments in key countries and regions. The second part is focused on Europe and, in particular, on the Nordic States and the post-communist countries where State-religion systems have undergone most profound change. The third and final part is devoted to four issues that are currently debated all over the world: the relations between freedom of expression and freedom of religion; proselytism and the right to change religion; the religious symbols; and the legal status of Islam in Europe and Canada.”
