Chapter Summary

This chapter is devoted to the question of whether the system for protection of freedom of religion in the Russian Federation is compatible with the concept of freedom of religion perceived in the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and developed by Strasbourg jurisprudence. Developments in Russia regarding the continuation of the process of democratization and its relationship with the Council of Europe, and question marks over the synergy between the two have become increasingly fascinating over the last few years and are now at a critical point. Considering the worrying amount of religious persecution and restriction, and a seeming trend towards preference and influence for the Russian Orthodox Church by the state, now is a fascinating time to consider the compatibility of the two systems in the context of freedom of religion.

Keywords: Council of Europe; European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR); freedom of religion; Russian Federation; Russian Orthodox Church (ROC); Strasbourg jurisprudence
