    60 Jahre nach der Allgemeinen Erklärung der Menschenrechte sind Menschenrechte auf dieser Welt nach wie vor keine Selbstverständlichkeit. Derzeit scheint vor allem die transkulturelle Geltung der Menschenrechte in Frage zu stehen. Im Zentrum dieses mit philosophischen und politischen Mitteln ausgetragenen Konflikts stehen vielfach faith und Religionen. Der Band fragt nach dem strength von Religionen zur Stärkung oder Schwächung des Menschenrechtsgedankens. Die Beiträge liefern neue Einsichten in die historischen und aktuellen Vermittlungsprozesse zwischen faith und Menschenrechten im Christentum und in anderen Weltreligionen wie Islam, Hinduismus und Konfuzianismus. Außerdem präsentiert er erstmals eine Reihe von empirischen Fallstudien, die zeigen, in welch überraschendem Maße Religionen als politische Akteure selbst menschenrechtsrelevante Politik betreiben.
