Why such report?

Studies show that Christians continue to be the most persecuted group across the globe. In 2015, approximately 105,000 Christians were killed because of their faith. One year later, approximately 90,000 Christians lost their lives because they confess Jesus Christ as God and the Savior.


Not a day goes by without news about the dramatic situation of Christians worldwide. This phenomenon, which could be rightly called Christianophobia, takes different forms, including acts of genocide.


Persecution of Christians has been recognized at many national and international fora and organizations. However, one can still notice the lack of comprehensive legal analysis of the situation of that particular religious group.


This report aims at filling in this gap by providing a systematic legal study both at the EU and at the international level.


Ordo Iuris Institute for Legal Culture believes that the outcomes of the report will contribute to a better legal understanding of the actual situation and will help highlight real legal measures that can be taken in order to improve the lot of persecuted Christians.

We would like to make this Report accessible to as many international institutions

and scholars as possible.
