New Publication: Chris McCrudden, Litigating Religions (OUP, 2018)

by | Apr 17, 2018

This new publication from Chris McCrudden Litigating Religions: An Essay on Human Rights, Courts and Beliefs (OUP, 2018) explores the contested relationship between human rights, religion, and litigation. It 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. It is 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.
