Religion-based reservations to the human rights conventions

A number of states have entered reservations to articles of core human rights conventions on the grounds that national laws, traditions, religion or culture are not in line with the principles outlined in the respective treaty.

This project looks to analyse, understand and generate awareness as to the extent, impact and necessity of religion-based reservations to the core human rights conventions. The project will also, building on this analysis, establish a dialogue between states on the subject and create the conditions under which states can consider tightening or removing such reservations.
