By Marie Macey, Alan Carling and Sheila M. Furness

Abstract

yesA new legal framework has been developed in Great Britain over the last ten years which protects individuals against unfair treatment on the grounds of their religion or belief. This framework regards all the major faith groups, secular belief systems (such as Humanism or Atheism), and non-belief on formally equal terms. There has also been a rapid growth of research interest in religion/belief in contemporary scholarship on equalities. \ud This report provides a critical overview of this extensive research base relating mainly to England, Scotland and Wales up until 2008
