Abstract:

"Law and the Wearing of Religious Symbols is a comprehensive analysis of a topical subject that is being widely debated across Europe. The book provides an overview of emerging case law from the European Court of Human Rights as well as from national courts and equality bodies in European countries on the wearing of religious symbols in educational settings. The author persuasively argues that bans on the wearing of religious symbols in educational institutions in Europe constitute a breach of an individual's human rights and contravene existing anti-discrimination legislation. The book offers a discussion of developments in Europe, including the French ban on Islamic head scarves which came into force in April 2011. In addition to an in-depth examination of recent bans, the book also assesses the arguments used for imposing them, as well as the legal claims that can potentially be made to challenge their validity. In doing this, the book goes beyond merely analysing the bans in place to suggest ways in which educational institutions can most fairly respond to requests for accommodation of the wearing of religious symbols and whether, perhaps, the adoption of other provisions or measures are necessary in order to improve the present situation"--Provided by publisher.
