All Party Group on International Religious Freedom

On July 17th Baroness Berridge was elected as the Chair of the new All Party Group on International Religious Freedom.  The group will seek to raise awareness of International Religious Freedom as a human right and co-ordinate the existing parliamentary work in this important field.

“The All Party Group’s first meeting was well attended but we know that there is much hard work to be done on this important issue.  The events in North Africa, the Middle East and Northern Nigeria mean there is an urgency to this work to help the many people whose freedoms are curtailed and who experience persecution for their religious beliefs.”
