Religion or belief strategy

Over the past few years, high profile legal cases have excited much controversy about the legal protections for religion or belief rights. However this has not led to clarity around these issues. The Commission's vision is for better public understanding of equality and human rights law, achieved through open discussion conducted with mutual respect and tolerance. To achieve this vision, the Commission has developed a new strategy to inform its future work.
