Each chapter should be between 18000-20000 words and deal with a single country: Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States.

Topics to be covered for each chapter are: Education, Employment, Exercise of Religion, State Relations with Religious Communities, Hate Crime and Hate Speech.

Researchers are invited to submit a 1-page chapter proposal and a current CV by March 15, 2017. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by March 30, 2017 about the status of their proposals, and will be sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by July 15, 2017.
