Abstract

The European Court of Human Rights' conception of democracy is rather thick, inclusive. Increasing number of complaints of violations of Article 3 of the First Protocol; Requirements of this provision that have to be complied with still thin; Limitation clauses of Article 11 to be interpreted strictly; Court's response to Islamic political parties and movements; Requirements with respect to the governance and politics of the States Parties should become stricter; Level of tolerance of religion in the public domain ought to increase; Need for more guidance from the Court not just an academic discussion
