The Online Atlas of Religious Minorities Rights in the Council of Europe Countries

The Online Atlas of Religious Minorities Rights in the Council of Europe Countries

Italian scholar Silvio Ferrari has launched a massive project that will be of interest to NRM scholars and others researching religion.

The project aims at producing an online Atlas of the religious minorities’ rights in the Council of Europe member States. The Atlas will provide a general overview of the religious minorities social and legal status in the CoE countries and, through its interactive format, the reader will also have access to data and information concerning a particular country, religious group, and area of rights. Each map will be complemented by a short text that places the map in its socio-historical context and, if necessary, provides further information. Maps and chapters will be updated every three years.

The Atlas is designed to offer an easy-to-read comparative description of the status of religious minorities in the CoE countries. It will consent to identify and compare the different levels of minorities rights protection granted by each State, the legal status enjoyed by each minority group both across the CoE countries and in each of them, and the specific areas of rights that are at stake (again both transversally across the CoE countries and in each of them).

Particular attention will be devoted to the rights implementation so that the gap between formal entitlement and real enjoyment of rights is reduced.
