About the Authors
  • As the new Europe takes shape, debates which had been confined to its constitutional structure are spilling over into more general areas, not least the field of law and religion. In this edited collection a team of experts seek to establish whether religion and the ‘new' Europe are in conflict. The collection looks at the question from two perspectives. Initially it considers the question from the perspective of the most influential schools of political thought. The second approach is to look at the theory and operation of the European human rights, with concluding remarks by Joseph Weiler. This title will be of interest to scholars of European constitutional and human rights law, as well as legal theorists. It will appeal to scholars in the field of law and religion.

    • Interdisciplinary treatment of the role of religion in Europe will appeal to lawyers, political scientists, philosophers, sociologists
    • Brings together political theory, legal theory and case law
    • Contains important new contributions from influential scholars such as Murizio Viroli, Robert Audi, Rainer Forst and Michel Rosenfeld as well as from promising younger scholars
