According to the authors, this book is meant to be a user-friendly, straightforward tool for empowering would-be advocates to effectively promote religious freedom. After a general introduction on the right to Freedom of Religion or Belief, it covers the United Nations, the European Union, the Council of Europe, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the Organization of American States, the African Union, and United State Bodies and Institutions. Further, it describes the various roles NGOs can play advocating for religious freedom. These roles are illustrated by two case studies, one on Turkmenistan and one on Vietnam. The guidebook is completed by over hundred pages of relevant appendices including a list of NGOs.
