The child’s right to religious freedom in international law has never been considered in a comprehensive fashion, yet key issues include the prevention of indoctrination, religious clothing, the relationship of the child with parents and religious communities, and the duties of the state to the child. Building on a sociological analysis of religious children, a body of international legal materials is analysed against a theoretical model of what the child’s right ought to be. This book is the first attempt at analysing what international law says on the question, the result is a compelling analysis of the definitive position of international law on the child’s right to religious freedom.
