From the report:
The project’s objective was to “enhance the standards of practice of religious communities with a view to safeguarding their own members, the followers of other religions, and society as a whole”.
The project has succeeded in providing a baseline discussion document for the current international debate on religion’s role in globalization, and the applicability of western-originated human rights culture to all authority structures. As such it can be placed alongside such initiatives as the scholar Arvind Sharma’s project A Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the World’s Religions.
