Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of this book, which deals with two approaches to this multitude of problems. The first is a human rights approach, the second a religious approach, which includes religious morality. Nonreligious people opt for the first approach, that of human rights. Adherents of the various religions, on the other hand, tend to opt for the second approach, that of religious morality, not only because it is an extension of their religious beliefs, but also because they may have some objections to human rights. The book covers the three themes: religion and religions, religion and human rights, and religion and a human rights culture. The chapter presents an overview of how the other chapters of the book are organised.

Keywords: human rights; religious rules
