about

In this fascinating book Malcolm Evans describes in detail the ways in which the freedom of religious belief has been incorporated into the legislation of the countries of Europe. He goes on to examine the mechanisms by which this freedom is guaranteed, and a number of problematic cases that have recently been discussed in the Council of Europe. In a concluding section he outlines a number of developments that will influence the direction that the search for the protection of religious liberty under international law may take.
