Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Religion, Human Rights and International Law: A Critical Examination of Islamic State Practices presents a table of contents and notes on the contributors. Freedom of religion is a subject, which has throughout human history been a source of profound disagreements and conflict. One of the most tragic examples which is embedded in the human psyche is the Holocaust leading to the death of six million Jews during the Second World War. In the modern era, religious, based intolerance continues to provide lacerative and tormenting concerns to the possibility of congenial human relationships. The book examines, religions have been relied upon to perpetuate discrimination and inequalities, and to victimise minorities to the point of forcible assimilation and genocide; religious minorities and women as vulnerable elements of the society have been particular targets of harassment and oppression.

Keywords: freedom of religion; human rights; international law; Islamic state practices
