PEW, "Rising Restrictions on Religion" (2011)
More than 2.2 billion people – nearly a third (32%) of the world’s total population of 6.9 billion – live in countries where either government restrictions on religion or social hostilities involving religion rose substantially over the period of 2006-2009. Only about 1% of the world’s population lives in countries where government restrictions or social hostilities declined. According to a newly released report by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life we are witnessing "Rising Restrictions on Religion". Download.

PEW, "Rising Tide of Restrictions on Religion" (2012)
"Between mid-2009 and mid-2010, religious restrictions rose not only in countries that began the year with high or very high restrictions, such as Indonesia and Nigeria, but also in many countries that began with low or moderate restrictions, such as Switzerland and the United States. The report looks at restrictions due to government actions as well as acts of violence and intimidation by private individuals, organizations and social groups."   Download.

PEW, Religious Hostilities Reach Six-Year High (2014)
Violence and discrimination against religious groups by governments and rival faiths have reached new highs in all regions of the world except the Americas, according to a new Pew Research Centre report. "Looking at the overall level of restrictions – whether resulting from government policies or from social hostilities – the study finds that restrictions on religion are high or very high in 43% of countries, also a six-year high. Because some of these countries (like China) are very populous, more than 5.3 billion people (76% of the world’s population) live in countries with a high or very high level of restrictions on religion, up from 74% in 2011 and 68% as of mid-2007."  Download.
