international standards protecting the freedom of religion or belief and rights of religious communities to legal entity status. The Universal Declaration's commitment to the fundamental right of freedom of religion or belief was embodied in Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Because this Covenant is a legally binding treaty obligation for States Parties to it which include most of the OSCE participating States, it is both somewhat more concrete, and more careful to note the limitations on freedom of religion or belief.

This book analyzes the promotion and protection of freedom of religion in the international arena with a particular focus on the role and influence of the US International Religious Freedom Act, 1998. It is argued that it is still possible to defend the unstable category of freedom of religion or belief especially when major violations are at stake. The book presents a balanced contribution to the academic debate on the promotion and protection of religious freedom.

The world is confronted with interdependence and cooperation among peoples, groups and nations. Simultaneously, ethnoreligious and interreligious conflicts as well as religious extremism are causing growing concern in all parts of the globe. In regard to the current protection of freedom of religion or belief two questions arise: why has the United Nations not adopted a legally binding instrument on freedom of religion or belief, and how can the international community ensure effective protection of freedom of religion or belief at the dawn of the twenty-first century? This volume provides the reader with multi-faceted answers to these two questions. It describes the unfolding of international standards and procedures regarding freedom of religion or belief from the establishment of the United Nations to the present. In addition, it investigates the possibility of a separate convention and an optional protocol to an existing human rights treaty. Since it demonstrates that the arguments in favour of these instruments have weakened, other ways and means of enhancing international legal protection are suggested.
