Within the UK, the recent cases of Nadia Ewedia and others before the European Court of Human Rights have brought questions of freedom of religion or belief to the fore, cases which are part of a much broader set of currents, interests, and debates. In this lecture, Professor Bielefeldt will reflect upon how what we’re seeing in the UK relates to these broader currents, from his unique perspective as the UN’s Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief.
