about

The scale and variety of acts of religious intolerance evident in so many countries today are of enormous contemporary concern. This timely study attempts a thorough and systematic analysis of both Universal and European practice. The standards applicable to freedom of religion are subjected to a detailed critique, and their development and implementation within the UN is distinguished from that within Strasbourg, in order to discern trends and obstacles to their advancement.
Paul Taylor is a Barrister at Lincoln's Inn.

Editorial Reviews

"...highly technical and very thorough examination of the law of religious freedom as it has developed in the UN and European Union...it is a treasure trove...Taylor has written a detailed, exhaustive treatment of two different human rights system (UN and Europe) in light of their success or failure in securing religious freedom. It is a work that repays reading and reflection, at least by human rights lawyers." --William L. Saunders, JR., Senior Fellow in Bioethics and Human Rights Counsel, Family Research Council, Touchstone (January/ebruary 2009)
