The RoRB Index promoting Recognition of Religion or Belief (RoRB). It is an online resource produced by The Religious Recognition Project as based on the doctoral research of Cometan.

RoRB Defined:

Recognition of religion or belief, also called religious recognition, is the principle that state and social recognition of citizens' belief identities as well as physical religious activity determines a country's overall conditions of freedom of religion or belief (FoRB).  RoRB is fourfold, it is...

  • an approach to the provision and protection of human rights that focuses on how the power of state recognition to influence the role of religion and belief in society can be used to enhance conditions of FoRB (called recognitionism).

  • the body of laws and policies that underpin how a country recognises the religious activities of its citizens (called recognition law).

  • the theory on human rights that reveals how national recognition systems are misused around the world to perpetuate violations of FoRB (called systematic misuse of recognition).

  • the method aiming for a sustainable form of recognition that centres on establishing an intermediary agency independent of state control that recognises belief identities and registers GBoBs and BBOs both fairly and authentically (called facilitationism).
