Religious Minorities Studies
This line of research focuses on the study of religious minority rights and pursues the following aims:
- to construct a map of religious minority rights in the member states of the European Union;
- to develop methods for reliably measuring the degree to which religious minority rights are respected and promoted in the member states of the European Union;
- to take stock of and compare the existing patterns of protection and development of minority rights in the Mediterranean area, in order to assess similarities and differences between countries with predominantly Christian and Muslim religious traditions.
