In this book the representatives of some religions at the EU Commission describe what their religious communities (Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Orthodox, and Protestant) expect from the European Union and how they conceive the dialogue with the European institutions. The second part of the volume contains a description of the institutions that have been created at governmental or ministerial level in some European Union Member States to deal with the religious communities.

Law, Religion and COVID-19 Emergency

The health emergency caused by the contagious virus SARS-CoV-2 is having many consequences also on religious rules – more broadly for the difficulties raising from the possible contradiction between the respect for the measures taken by civil authorities and religious rules. International law allows for the limitation? of the right to religious freedom on the grounds of protection of public health, and we are witnessing a situation of unprecedented restrictions on the global scale. As scholars engaged in the study of the legal regulation of the religious phenomenon, we have wanted to create a space to collect documents, comments and other useful materials related to the emergency, in order to assess the outcomes of the normative choices made by civil and religious authorities.

The monograph “Spiritual Care in Public Institutions in Europe” focuses on these topics in detail.
