The International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 established within the State Department the Office of International Religious Freedom, as well as the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), and outlined primary responsibilities for each. This report assesses State's and USCIRF's implementation of their primary responsibilities, their interaction to promote religious freedom, and NGOs' views on U.S. efforts to promote religious freedom. GAO analyzed documents and interviewed officials from State, USCIRF, NGOs, and foreign governments. GAO conducted fieldwork in five countries, including CPCs, and surveyed 131 NGOs. The survey results reflect the views of survey respondents and cannot be generalized.
