Law and Religion in a Global Context

Law and Religion in a Global Context

Series Ed.: Ravitch, Frank S.

Law and Religion in a Global Context will focus on law and religion issues from a global perspective at a time when that field is of increasing importance and relevance around the world. Designed to be broad, the scope allows for books on the relationship between religion and government as well as on religious law. Focus will be placed on comparative law issues, but also on issues within single countries. Representative areas of focus will be:

·        the relationship between government and religion ranging from laicete to theocracy
·        religious freedom in pluralistic societies
·        the relationship between religious freedom and other freedoms such as freedom of speech and sexual freedom
·        regulation of religion by government
·        original contributions on religious law

The series seeks to highlight up and coming voices in the field alongside those of established scholars. We encourage scholars from a wide range of geographic perspectives to apply. Purely doctrinal analysis of law and religion is not preferred. Nor is analysis of religious law issues without any original contribution or insights. The only exception to this rule might be books on legal doctrine from a region that has been under analyzed in English language literature.
