U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) was created in 1998 through the International Religious Freedom Act. USCIRF is supposed to be an “independent, bipartisan, federal commission” that uses international law and treaties, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to monitor violations of religious freedom around the world.
