Litigating Religions

An Essay on Human Rights, Courts, and Beliefs

Christopher McCrudden

  • Explores the contested relationship between human rights, religion, and litigation
  • Demonstrates how the renewed geo-political significance of religion and recent developments in human rights legislation have meant that conflicts are increasingly subject to judicial interpretation
  • Draws on Christopher McCrudden's own experiences in court as a human rights practitioner as well myriad examples of how the right to religion has been mediated in the courts
  • An accessible discussion, for a non-specialist audience, of key themes and problems that arise in the courts when religions and religious beliefs enter the frame
