Abstract

This article gives an overview about the decision Eweida and Others v. the United Kingdom at the European Court of Human Rights (application nos. 48420/10, 59842/10, 51671/10 and 36516/10), Jan. 15, 2013.

The judgment stands in a continuing line of decisions at the European Court of Human Rights on the freedom of religion and on non-discrimination. The growing volume of decisions on the question when a person is allowed to display religion demonstrates how crucial issues of religious faith, non-belief and pluralism are in European society today.

Keywords: freedom of religion, non-discrimination, European court of human rights, ECtHR, ECHR, Eweida and Others v. the United Kingdom
