Chapter Summary

Domestic policy makers are likely to want specific guidance on the extent to which they are able to regulate the wearing of religious symbols either in general or in particular contexts, rather than an understanding of how the Court is likely to determine whether their decisions are compliant with the Convention and the principles and approaches it will draw on whilst doing so. This chapter provides guidance based on examples provided by the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights. It focuses on basic elements of the Article 9 framework. The first is that everyone has the right to manifest their religion or belief in teaching, worship, practice and observance. When conducting this exercise decision-makers should be mindful of the basic principles and policies.
