CONSTITUTING RELIGION: LAW, SOCIETY AND FAITH IN THE 21ST CENTURY, Peter Cane, Carolyn Evans and Zoe Robinson, eds., July 2009
The essay looks at the significance of choosing days of rest in multicultural societies, and the difficulties that relate to this choice in a shared public space. Respect for cultures may demand a deviation from the liberal ideal of integration. In addition, the relationships between cultures and religious heritages and freedom of and from religion are explored.
