About this book

Some countries, like the UK, give special recognition by the state to one or a few religions; other countries, like France and the US, give recognition to none. This book is about a new approach that gives equal recognition to all religions and non-religious belief systems.

Reviews

“It is a welcome and commendable addition to the literature and theorization of the role and place of religion in the public sphere. … Carling’s introduction provides a very comprehensive survey that many will find useful … . I would certainly commend it as a useful addition to the literature … .” (Paul Hedges, Reading Religion, readingreligion.org, March, 2017) 

“This edited collection originated from a set of conference presentations on the theme of ‘equality of religion or belief’ … . It is therefore a very diverse collection of papers, covering the status of a variety of religious minorities in the United Kingdom as well as issues from several other countries. … This compilation of articles and the framework established by Alan Carling are a valuable addition to the discourse on religious freedom.” (Janet Epp Buckingham, Journal of Church and State, Vol. 59 (3), 2017)
