Religion and Its Others in South Asia and the World: Communities, Debates, Freedoms

Project description

A closer look at asylum claims based on religious freedom

The freedom of religion (the freedom to have, not to have, to practice or not to practice any religion) is a fundamental right under international law. In south Asia, those who do not conform to or question the dominant religion may face serious problems, including persecution, forcing them to flee and seek asylum in other countries. The EU-funded ROSA project will seek to answer the following: What are the specific circumstances in which criticism targeting these communities and positions evolves? This study will investigate the assumptions that inform European countries’ responses to cases in which asylum is sought on the basis of claimants’ religious nonconformism. It will extend beyond south Asia and examine global implications of critical debates and actions that are taking place.
