Religion and State Around the World
This recent Research on Religion podcast is an interview with Jonathan Fox, a political scientist who has recently been studying religious liberty around the world. He has constructed a database of information about religious freedoms around the world that can be accessed here. The interview is a bit long but there are some good points made about the subtleties associated with religious freedom law. For example, every country regulates religion in some form or another, but the extent and bias in privileges is what differs across countries.
