Law and Religious Pluralism in Canada seeks to elucidate thecomplex and often uneasy relationship between law and religion indemocracies committed both to equal citizenship and religiouspluralism. Leading socio-legal scholars consider the role of religiousvalues in public decision making, government support for religiouspractices, and the restriction and accommodation by government ofminority religious practices. They examine such current issues as thelegal recognition of sharia arbitration, the re-definition of civilmarriage, and the accommodation of religious practice in the publicsphere.
