Background

This study is part of a three-year Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) programme of work to increase understanding of religion or belief in public life, improve knowledge about what happens in practice and ensure that the laws that protect everyone’s right to be treated with fairness, dignity and respect are effective.

The EHRC asked us to conduct a call for evidence on the effectiveness of legislation designed to protect people who hold a religion or belief or do not hold a religion or belief.
