While domestic options for redress of violations of religious freedom may be few or futile, there is an array of mechanisms at the international level that religious freedom advocates can access to help bring relief to those suffering persecution and repression. However, to be effective, advocates must have an understanding of international law and be precise with their facts and terminology. The article highlights key points for those who wish to engage, and points to resources that can equip individuals for effective advocacy, including international bodies which can be approached.
