The Religion and State (RAS) project is a university-based project located at Bar Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel. Its goal is to create a set of measures that systematically gauge the intersection between government and religion. Specifically, it examines government religion policy. The project's goals are threefold:
1. To provide an accurate description of government religion policies worldwide.
2. To create a tool which will lead to greater understanding of the factors which influence government
3. To provide the means to examine how government religion policy influences other political, social, and
economic factors as well as how those factors influence government religion policy
