1. There is a need for a theoretically sound conceptualization of religious freedom. 2. This religious freedom concept must itself be based on a robust conception of society and the state. 3.

An institution-sensitive religious freedom conception provides a better protection in current religious freedom cases than the dominant conception based on the principle of individual autonomy.
