A similar dynamic is taking place in the United States, although American households are generally much smaller than Senegalese households. The Pew Research Center household-level estimate (using data from the General Social Survey) indicates that the average household in the United States is 2.5 people. Meanwhile, the calculation at the individual level shows that the average person in the United States lives in a household of about 3.4 people. Like all other human rights, this freedom does not “prevail” over other freedoms and is sometimes in tension with other human rights, such as freedom of expression and expression and the absence of discrimination based on sex or sexual orientation. This is reflected, for example, in the structure of Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights: the right to religious belief, conscience and thought is absolutely protected, but demonstrations enjoy qualified protection only to the extent that they do not violate other human rights.

These differences also extend to household formation. Typically, Muslims in Nigeria share their homes with nearly three more people than their fellow Christians, with an average household of 8.7 people among Nigerian Muslims, compared to 5.9 among Nigerian Christians. Although there is no national law providing for polygamy in Nigeria, polygamous marriages are recognized in 12 Muslim-majority states in the north – and Nigerian Muslims are much more likely than Christians to live in polygamous households (40% vs. 8%). (For a detailed discussion of polygamy in laws and religion, see here.) The Council of Europe White Paper on Intercultural Dialogue “Living together on an equal footing and with dignity” (2008) recognises that a number of religious and secular conceptions of life have enriched Europe`s cultural heritage and underlines the importance of interreligious, intra-religious and other dialogue in promoting understanding between different cultures. It also stresses that the Council of Europe “will remain neutral with regard to different religions, while defending freedom of thought, conscience and religion, the rights and duties of all citizens and the respective autonomy of the State and religions”.10 The promotion of religious tolerance and interreligious dialogue is also one of the priorities of the Council of Europe`s youth policy.
As part of a series of events organised as part of the “All Different – All Equal” campaign in 2007-2008, recommendations and action plans were developed to promote interreligious dialogue in European youth work, including the Istanbul Declaration on Youth on Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue in Youth Work12 and the Kazan Action Plan13. All these documents highlight the crucial role of young people and youth organizations in promoting the transition to religious tolerance. Our households – who live with us, how we relate to them and what role we play in this common space – have a profound impact on our daily experience of the world. A new analysis by the Pew Research Center, with data from 130 countries and territories, shows that household size and composition often vary based on religious affiliation. Religious intolerance can be observed at different levels: among followers of the same religion (intra-religious intolerance); between one religion or religious attitude and another, which manifests itself in various forms of conflict between persons and groups of persons (interreligious intolerance); in the form of conflictual atheism or conflictual theism, which are intolerant of free choice and the practice of other religions or religious obligations; or in the form of anti-secularism. Religious intolerance is often confused with xenophobia and other forms of discrimination; Sometimes it is also used to justify discrimination. Most human rights violations related to freedom of religion or belief are also related to non-discrimination. Discrimination based on religion and belief violates human rights, but it is nevertheless experienced daily by many people throughout Europe. The fact that religion and belief are often confused with culture, nationality and ethnicity makes things more complicated, but also more painful at the individual level: they can be discriminated against based on their religious affiliation, even if you do not believe in the religion you are affiliated with.
For the purposes of this report, the Pew Research Center chose to present statistics from an individual perspective, as the goal is to describe the experiences typically experienced by people – an average Hindu or an average Buddhist, an average woman, or an average child. The authors invite readers to imagine the daily lives of ordinary people. Worldwide, the most common type of household is the extended family, which accounts for 38% of the world`s population. But some religious groups are more likely to live in extended families than others. Hindus are the only large group in which a majority live with an extended family like grandparents, uncles and in-laws. Muslims, Christians and Jews are more likely to live in households with two parents consisting of two partners with one or more minor children. Living alone is unusual for all religious groups, but it is more common among Jews than among the world`s other major religions: about one in ten Jews worldwide is in individual households. From a global perspective, Jews are also much more likely than non-Jews to live in households consisting of a couple without children or other family members.1 Religions often advise against divorce.
