The Center for Religious Freedom’s second edition of Religious Freedom in the World (Rowman and Littlefield), edited by Paul Marshall, was published in February 2008. This survey describes and rates over 100 key countries and territories, especially those where religious freedom is most violated, using criteria based on international law. It profiles countries in short narrative sketches, comparatively ranks them according to a standard set of criteria of religious freedom for all religious groups, and includes scores and charts of freedom. In each case, it correlates religious freedom with measures of economic freedom, social wellbeing, civil liberties, and political rights. It also features essays by experts explaining and evaluating current relevant world issues and trends. Its findings have been reported in the Economist (“Worship at Will” July 11, 2007), Foreign Policy (“Failed States Index 2007: Failing the Faithful,” July/August 2007), and several dozen other media outlets.
