This article examines the limits to expression on religion in France. It places the relevant provisions in French law and national case law concerning expression on religion within the context of the strict separation of the state and the church in France, known as la laïcité. Subsequently, it analyzes whether French case law complies with the relevant case law of the European Court of Human Rights.
