Through UK Aid Connect, DFID will provide funding to a consortium led by the Institute of Development Studies to collect data on marginalised religious or belief groups in a way which does not put those groups at risk. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is supporting a project to explore models for better data on Freedom of Religion or Belief through the Magna Carta Fund.
