Politics of Religion at Home and Abroad

Teaching Law and Religion

The Teaching Law and Religion site was developed as part of the Politics of Religion at Home and Abroad project. This site presents open access English-language resources and analysis of legal cases and background materials from different parts of the world. The cases feature different legal, political and religious institutions, histories and traditions. The aim is to provide a series of templates for thinking and teaching creatively and comparatively about law, religion, culture and politics—and their complex intersections—in a variety of distinctive contexts. Designed for teachers, students, scholars, researchers, and policy-makers, we expect these materials will be of interest to the disciplines of religious studies, political science, anthropology, critical theory, sociology, international relations and legal studies. They will also interest legal practitioners, human rights advocates, and others working at the practical intersections of religion, law and politics.
