Law and the wearing of religious symbols in Europe

Howard, Erica ORCID: (2019) Law and the wearing of religious symbols in Europe. Routledge, Abingdon/New York. ISBN 9780367178901, e-ISBN 9780367178918. [Book] (doi:10.4324/9780367178918)


Written in accessible language, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of a topical subject that is being widely debated across Europe. The work presents an overview of emerging case law from the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union, as well as from national courts and equality bodies in European countries, on the wearing of religious symbols in public spaces. The author persuasively argues that bans on the wearing of religious symbols constitutes a breach of an individual’s human rights and contravene existing anti-discrimination legislation. Fully updated to take account of recent case law, this second edition has been expanded to consider bans in public spaces more generally, including employment, an area where some of the recent developments have taken place.
