Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the nature and scope of the minimum standards for freedom of religion or belief in the international community, as regulated by the principal international norms. With the beginning of a new millennium, the international community's continued efforts and interest in development, advancement, and technology present the ineluctable question of whether states and inter-state organizations are likewise ready to make additional progress in the area of freedom of religion or belief by, perhaps, adopting a mandatory treaty based on the existing draft or other instruments. Some even argue that a shift from violence between sovereign states to conflicts between ethnic and religious groups is taking place.

Keywords: belief; international community; religious freedom
