Abstract: In the 21st century, human rights are a major characteristic of social evolution and are often considered as a sign of progressive societies. However, universality is a key-concern regarding their efficient implementation and thus their enforcement is important to be examined on a global scale. Cultural differences and conflicting political and economic interests lead to varied approaches on their legal or even moral validity. Of particular interest is the issue of religion and its relationship to human rights. In the present paper, the relationship in question is examined using observations on the case of Turkey. The topic is analyzed through three main pillars: history, theology and legislation.
