Abstract:Despite the crucial significance of religious belief to many millions of individuals in South Africa, there has been very limited legal academic writing concerning the implications of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, for religious rights and freedoms, even though there is an urgent need for an examination of these fundamental issues. This special issue is divided into two sections. The first section is a more general one and includes articles on a wide range of topics where the central theme is a connection to advancing discourse on religious rights and freedom. The second part concerns the relationship between religious freedom, associational rights and prohibitions against discrimination. Contributions: Religion and the public sphere: towards a model that positively recognises diversity (David Bilchitz and Alistair Williams) - Mottos, prayer and the public university (Shaun de Freitas) - Judging Jews: court interrogation of rule-making and decision-taking by Jewish ecclesiastical bodies (Stu Woolman and David Zeffertt) - The positive role of public policy in private international law and the recognition of foreign Muslim marriages (Jan L. Neels) - The right of religious associations to discriminate (Patrick Lenta) - Freedom of association as a foundational right: religious associations and 'Strydom v Nederduitse Gereformeerde Gemeente, Moreleta Park' (Shaun de Freitas) - Seek justice elsewhere: an egalitarian pluralist's reply to David Bilchitz on the distinction between differentiation and domination (Stu Woolman) - Why courts should not sanction unfair discrimination in the private sphere: a reply (David Bilchitz).
