Abstract:     
This article addresses the relationship between international law and religion. The author considers the different aspects of this relationship in a time where a resurgence of religion, and with it new perspectives on international human rights, has sought to change the terms of the debate. The article explores the different models that seek to conceptualise the relationship between religion and international law; in doing so, the author critically analyses the current climate from an historical perspective and from a spectrum of different theoretical perspectives. The author offers a narration of the ongoing interaction of religion and international law, whilst offering his analysis of how that interaction can be acknowledged and promoted whilst being used to harmonise areas of international tension, and further the development of human rights.
