Freedom House will host a lunch event to release the findings from its new report, Policing Belief: Blasphemy Laws and Their Impact on Human Rights. This report will explore the use and misuse of blasphemy laws in Algeria, Egypt, Greece, Kuwait, Malaysia, Pakistan and Poland. The findings illustrate the negative impact blasphemy laws have on a range of human rights and how such legislation is not effective in combating religious intolerance.
