Religion & Human Rights

An International Journal

Editor-in-Chief: Jeroen Temperman
Religion & Human Rights provides a unique academic forum for the discussion of issues which are of crucial importance and which have global reach. The Journal covers the interactions, conflicts and reconciliations between religions or beliefs on the one hand; and systems for the promotion and protection of human rights, international, regional and national, on the other.

The Journal tackles these issues fearlessly, and draws its materials from all relevant disciplines - theology, anthropology, history, international relations, human rights, religious studies, and many others - but with special emphasis on legal frameworks. It is an indispensable source for all those concerned with monitoring, studying, teaching, analysing or developing policies on the relationship between religion and human rights today.

Religion & Human Rights is a peer-reviewed, academic journal, published by Brill | Nijhoff - the world’s leading imprint for international Human Rights books and periodicals. Brill | Nijhoff is an imprint of Brill in Leiden, The Netherlands, which is itself internationally renowned for the strength of its publishing programmes, inter alia, in the field of religious studies.
