In this practice note I reflect on the experience of the Coalition for Religious Equality and Inclusive Development (CREID) in establishing and deepening partnerships for the promotion of inclusive processes of change for redressing inequalities along the lines of religious affiliation, ethnicity, class, gender, geography and other identifiers.

The challenges to the promotion of freedom of religion or belief (FoRB) internationally, from the vantage point of being a Western-based initiative, are immense. This chapter highlights the pivotal role of garnering legitimacy on such a highly sensitive topic as FoRB with its politically loaded historical and contemporary baggage

SDG5 is the stand-alone goal focused on the promotion of gender equality, while the expectation is that all other SDGs would also be gender-sensitive in their application. However, the relationship between women’s right to gender equality and freedom of religion or belief (FoRB) in development hardly features in academic scholarship. The first part of this chapter will review some of the key academic and grey literature sources on the FoRB-gender equality nexus. The second part will then adopt a FoRB-lens onto gender equality with respect to the indicators drawn for SDG5, drawing primarily on the Coalition for Religious Equality and Inclusive Development (CREID) programme’s scholarship.

This introductory chapter begins by presenting the dual lens of the two editors on how participatory research methodologies and understanding of freedom of religion or belief (FoRB) came to inform their own interpretive frameworks, and in turn how these came to shape the approach to this book. The second section of the introduction describes the rationale for the book and its intended readership, and gives an overview of the contexts and methods covered in the various case studies. The final section delineates how the book is organized and its internal logic.

This book brings together reflections, knowledge and learning about the daily experiences of religiously marginalized groups in Iraq, India, Pakistan and Nigeria – countries where religious pluralism is circumscribed. It showcases the participatory methodologies implemented by its international team of contributors and highlights the relevance of using visual, dialogic and creative methods for engaging with participants on intersecting inequalities.

Including a careful consideration of the ethics and limitations of participatory research with religiously marginalized groups, the book reflects on the implications for people’s agency when research creates space for them to reflect on their realities in a group setting and uses methods which put their own experience and analysis at the centre of the process.

This concluding chapter discusses learning about using participatory methodologies to research freedom of religion and belief (FoRB), their strengths for researching this topic, how have they been applied and adapted in context, their limitations and ethical issues. Second, it discusses what the use of PMs has revealed about the nature of FoRB that other methods do not capture. It highlights the potential for participatory methods to surface how religious inequalities intersect with other drivers of marginalization.

Religious Inequality and the Struggle for Sustainable Development

EPDF and EPUB available Open Access under CC-BY-NC-ND licence.

Freedom of religion and belief is crucial to any sustainable development process, yet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) pay little attention to religious inequalities.

This book offers a comprehensive overview of how efforts to achieve SDGs can be enhanced by paying greater attention to freedom of religion and belief. In particular, it illustrates how poverty is often a direct result of religious prejudice and how religious identity can shape a person’s job prospects, their children’s education and the quality of public services they receive. Drawing on evidence from Asia, the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa, the book foregrounds the lived experiences of marginalized communities as well as researchers and action organizations.
