Chapter Summary

An international consultative conference on education in relation with freedom of religion and belief, tolerance and non-discrimination held in Madrid in November 2001 expressed concern about the continuing discrimination against, inter alia, children, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, and emphasized the necessity to ensure their human rights and fundamental freedoms and in particular their right to freedom of religion or belief, tolerance and non-discrimination. The Final Document of the conference noted the understanding that freedom of religion or belief includes theistic, non-theistic and atheistic beliefs, as well as the right not to profess any religion or belief. It also underlined the urgent need to develop respect for pluralism and called upon states to promote educational policies aimed at eradicating prejudices and conceptions incompatible with freedom of religion or belief.

Keywords: educational policies; freedom of religion; human rights
