Global Trends Improving On Religious Freedom (DATA)

Religious freedom initiatives are booming in recent global surveys.

Leveling the playing field for social cohesion, these advances propel Interfaith to a global tidal wave now crossing the borders of more than half of the world’s nations. If the following data is promising, it may reach almost three quarters of the world’s nations if trends in religious freedom continue. Unexpected improvements are stacking up fast toward more liberating political movements, and the station of women is appraising with higher worth in more areas as well. 

While the European Union cements its democratic view of religious life and liberty,

  • Pew Forum data discussed in this week’s the Daily Number announces that 76 percent of nations are trying to do something about “religious restrictions and hostilities.” Over half of these nations are initiating interfaith dialogue policies, and almost 40 percent of nations are specifically enacting measures to redress or combat religious discrimination. 
  • For even more information, the United States Department of State recently released a comprehensive, year-long 2012 report on International Religious Freedom. The online data can be customized toward research results filtered into specific nations, regions, and categories. Violations aren’t the only tracked data, and there is good news to be discovered in 15 nations improving their effort to advance religious freedom. Political, social, and anecdotal evidence is provided concerning attitudes and unprecedented legal amendments.
