Abstract

This report examines the law in relation to equality, human
rights and religion or belief and how it is understood and applied in the workplace and in public services. Through interviews with religion or belief groups and other stakeholders, the research shows that the law is contested. Tensions exist between some 'religious' and 'secular' perspectives and between the religion and sexual orientation equality strands. Nevertheless, there is some consensus, for example concerning the need both to avoid unnecessary litigation and to develop principles to avoid disputes. Ground rules to ensure more temperate public debate are also required.
