Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the book. The principal research question motivating this book is: how does the mode of state-religion identification affect the state's scope for compliance with human rights? The contribution to the existing literature on religion-state relations this book intends to make is the presentation of human rights based assessment of the various modes of state-religion identification and of the various measures and forms of state practice that surround these different state-religion relationships. The book is divided into two main parts. Part I provides a comprehensive comparative legal analysis of religion-state relationships. In Part II those state-religion relationships are analysed from a human rights perspective.

Keywords: human rights law; neutral governance; state-religion relationships
