Combating the Persecution of Christians Worldwide: A framework for Western engagement

Since the days of Christ’s first apostles, Christians have faced persecution for their faith. Recent research confirms that the current global persecution of Christians is severe and has been on the rise over the past several years. This white paper outlines a high-level and comprehensive approach to responding to and preventing religious persecution. The paper begins by offering an overview of religious freedom in international law. It then discusses legislative advocacy, as so much of the persecution Christians face is either, on the one hand, partially caused by legislation hostile to religious freedom or, on the other, preventable through or punishable by strong religious freedom legislation. The paper then examines opportunities for political advocacy, such as training politicians friendly to religious freedom and pressuring politicians and governments to advance religious freedom.
