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

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Nov 03, 2020 | Coalition for Religious Equality and Inclusive Development, Santiago Ripoll

Epidemics with high mortality rates place a heavy burden on societies, increasing the number of deaths that must be dealt with over a short period of time. In this working paper of the Coalition for Religious Equality and Inclusive Development, Santiago Ripoll 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 customary final farewell. He focuses on how epidemic response in the context of death and burial, frame and impact religious minority rights, and how sectarian dynamics adapt in the context of epidemic response.
