R3D: Understanding Religious Rights & Religious Discrimination

A potential threat to the quality of multidisciplinary dialogue between legal scholarship and broader study  of religion is the difficulty  non-law students  experience in conceptualizing key legal  materials.   Key to understanding the 21st century developments in the field  are the reported cases of the courts of England and Wales, in particular the appellate courts. Within the two most significant  areas - religious  rights and religious discrimination - the courts  have considered issues such as the wearing of Christian religious symbols in the workplace (Ewajda), Hindu and Sikh cremation practices (Ghai),admission policies by Jewish schools (JFS),  and accommodation of varieties of Muslim dress in school uniform codes (Begum).  The Religious Rights and Religious Discrimination project (R3D) is  an online open access Commentary aimed at religious studies students and scholars. It aims to identify and contextualize key cases from the law of England and Wales in relation to Religious Rights and Religious Discrimination. The Commentary is specifically but not exclusively aimed at students of religion who  do not have a legal background, enhancing their understanding of the key decisions. The Commentary therefore enhances student learning for researchers, reviewers and readers.

R3D was made possible by the generous support of the HEA Philosophy and Religious Studies Subject Centre. It continues to be supported by the Applied Study of Law and Religion Group at Oxford Brookes University.
