Author: HILL, Mark
Series/Number: EUI RSCAS; 2016/07; RELIGIOWEST
This paper considers the approach of domestic courts and the European Court of Human Rights to the adjudication of religious liberty claims, contrasting them with the output of the United States Supreme Court. It questions the definition of religion and judicial illiteracy in faith based claims. It seeks to make take a fresh approach to such cases by recasting them as claims for freedom of conscience. It commends a nuanced application of the principle of reasonable accommodation.
