The more religious diversity increases in Europe, the more the rights of religious or belief minorities (RBMs) need to be mapped and measured. Evidence-based policies that effectively promote the rights of these minorities require tools capable of identifying which rights they enjoy and how much they are promoted in a range of countries across the EU. The Atlas of religious or belief minority rights has developed three indices that measure the promotion of RBM rights, the equal treatment of the RBMs themselves, and the gap which separates these minorities from religious majorities. This analysis presented some unexpected findings.
