The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has recently released the report Violating rights: Enforcing the world’s blasphemy laws, which “examines and compares the implementation of blasphemy laws between 2014 and 2018”.

The report provides “extensive data and illustrative examples to demonstrate the plethora of ways that governments’ enforcement of blasphemy laws undermines human rights”, including freedom of religion or belief and freedom of expression, said USCIRF Chair Gayle Manchin.
