The protection of inherent rights has been one of the main concerns of the modern government. One of the key civil rights issues addressed under constitutions around the world is the protection of religious rights. These areas include how religion is exercised, whether it is taught in schools, and its usage as a discriminatory factor. By examining how religious freedoms are treated in various constitutions around the world, we can compare and contrast different international governments. These observations can be used to see how the protection of religious freedoms is correlated to the social, religious, and economic development of these countries. The research that I have compiled shows that the protection of religious rights is very closely tied to the flourishing of human rights and the societies of countries today.
