    It looks like the so-called ‘checks and balances’ that guarantee the vulnerable equilibrium between legislative, executive and judicial branches of governance are increasingly under pressure, even in Western democracies. Respect for political and judicial human rights are nevertheless bedrock of the protection of democracy itself.  This volume is focused on the relationship between religion on the one hand and political and judicial rights on the other. Political rights refer, among others, to active and passive voting right; right to protest; and rights of refugees.  Judicial rights refer in general to the right of a fair trial, and include principles like equality before the law; the right to independent and impartial judgement; the presumption of innocence; the right to legal counsel; and the privilege against self-incrimination. The empirical work in this volume has measured young people’s attitudes towards political and judicial rights and explains the variety in views by looking at religious beliefs and practices,  personal evaluation of state authorities and personality characteristics. It also discusses contextual determinants for attitudes towards political and judicial rights, either theoretically or based on empirical indicators. The empirical clarification of factors that induce or reduce people’s support of political and judicial rights is the original and innovative contribution of this volume. The key question in this volume therefore is: to what extent do youths in different countries support political and judicial human rights and what influences their attitudes towards these rights?
