|"On the Road towards Religious Pluralism? Church and State in Serbia"
|Religion, State and Society, Vol. 33, No. 4, December
|This article examines various legal and societal aspects of the church-state relationship in Serbia after the fall of Milošević regime. Ilić underlines such issues as the state of religious freedom and tolerance in Serbian society and attempts to locate the Serbian situation within European context. This article assembles the most recent Serbian legislation on religious affairs and interprets its societal consequences from the human rights perspective. The author locates religious legislation in a more general context of the governmental and political crisis, which provides a rare legal view on the problem of church-state relationship. As a comparative example Ilić briefly analyses analogous legislation in Greece, which is the only EU member-state with the Orthodox majority of population.
