Because of concerns about increasing restrictions on religious rights around the world, Congress passed the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 (the Act) to strengthen U.S. advocacy of individuals persecuted in foreign countries on account of religion. According to the Act, more than half of the world’s population was living under governments that severely restricted or prohibited freedom of religion. This book examines the elements and implementation efforts of the International Religious Freedom Act with a focus on its objectives, scope and methodology. (Imprint: Nova)
