Accessible to legal practitioners, education professionals, policy makers and politicians, Religion, Education and the Law: A Comparative Approach compares the relevant aspects of each system, including the characteristics, structures, case law and the degree of separation of Church and State deriving from historical experience in:

The forces of democracy in Ireland and elsewhere are bringing about important changes in the Church-State relationship relating to education. As the E.U. consolidates and harmonises, the role of the churches in education in the Member States is being influenced by its equality and non-discrimination principles, while the impact of international human rights law on education is also increasing. It is vital that your organisation is fully in step with these important developments and case by ordering a copy of this essential new book without delay.

The plain-language employed throughout facilitates an understanding of the complex legal issues involved. Buy this book and benefit from:

  • An enlightening analysis of the law surrounding the church-state relationship
  • Key information on Ireland's education system
  • Up-to-date information on the human rights laws relating to religion and education
