The chapters in this volume on Freedom of Religion and Religious Pluralism range from Hinduism to Islam, and their approaches to other religious and non-religious beliefs; from topics related to the current Australian debate on ‘religious belief’, to the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights on freedom of expression and freedom of religion. The chapters bear witness of the crucial role the freedom of religion (including the freedom to denounce religion) plays in contemporary societies all over the world. The volume hopes to contribute to the recognition that manifesting the freedom of religion in a pluralistic democratic society at the same time requires the toleration of a great variety of religious beliefs, of non-religious beliefs and of criticism towards religion and (non-)religious beliefs. That is a major challenge for today’s pluralist societies all over the world.
