What is it about?
This article asks whether governments are getting more involved or less involved in religion. I analyze both government support for religion and government discrimination against religious minorities in 177 countries between 1990 and 2008 and find that both increased significantly during this period.
Why is it important?
It is becoming increasingly clear that religion is becoming more important in politics in the Muslim world. This article demonstrates that this is also true of the non-Muslim world.
