CREID Working Paper 3

Death and Funerary Practices in the Context of Epidemics: Upholding the Rights of Religious Minorities

Published on 16 October 2020

This CREID Working Paper explores the challenges that emerge when public health measures to mitigate the risk of infection during an epidemic infringe on the rights of religious communities to say a final farewell to their loved ones according to their custom.

It aims to answer these questions:

  • how does epidemic response in the context of death and burials frame and impact religious minority rights?
  • And in turn, how do sectarian dynamics reposition themselves in the context of epidemic response?
