About the Authors
  • 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.

    • The first major work to compare UN and European standards regarding freedom of religion
    • Simple, clear format and detailed thematic analysis makes the text readily accessible for research purposes
    • Compendious citation of UN and European authorities on each issue are considered

    Reviews & endorsements

    "As an exercise in comparing European and International legal struggles in religious liberty, Taylor's book is worth reading."
    -- The Law and Politics Book Review, Stephen McDougal, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse

    "...highly technical and very thorough examination of the law of religious freedom as it has developed in the UN and European 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)
