The Religion and Law journal is the only Russian publication dedicated to the problems of religious freedom, church-state relations and rights of believers. Its impartiality, broad range of opinions expressed and emphasis on the rule of law has made it an invaluable resource fro the Russian and international scholars, human rights lawyers and activists, as well as civil servants in charge of relations with religious organizations on the federal and local levels of government.
