European Court judgement in the case of Eweida, Ladele, and others

January 17th 2013

An important judgment was delivered yesterday (15 January 2013) by the European Court of Human Rights on a case touching upon freedom of religion, religious discrimination and the balance between competing Convention rights, notably those of freedom of religion and the prohibition of discrimination.

Equinet discussed some of these issues and indeed cases in its 2011 report A question of faith: religion and belief in Europe, within the Equinet Working Group on Equality Law in Practice.
