On this occasion, we released the initial findings of the Center’s forthcoming book, Religious Freedom in the World 2007. This survey describes and analyzes 100 countries, especially those where religious freedom is most violated. It ranks them comparatively, includes scores and charts of freedom, details world trends, correlates religious freedom with measures of economic freedom, social wellbeing, civil liberties, and political rights, and features essays by experts explaining relevant issues.
Paul Marshall, Senior Fellow, Center for Religious Freedom, presented survey results.
Discussion and additional commentary was provided by: Brian Grim, Senior Research Fellow in Religion and World Affairs at the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life; Theodore Malloch, Founder and Chairman, Spiritual Enterprise Institute; Zainab Al-Suwaij, co-founder and Executive Director of the American Islamic Congress (AIC); and Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.
The panel was chaired by Michael Novak, American Enterprise Institute.
