Abstract: Publisher's description: The origins of these manuals lie in the increasing interest and importance of questions concerning the manner in which the freedom of religion and belief is to be enjoyed in Europe today, and how freedom of expression can be reconciled with other rights in a multi-cultural society. These volumes, written by human rights experts and commissioned by the Council of Europe, offer an overview of two contentious topics - the wearing of religious symbols in public areas and the issue of hate speech - and supply insight into key concepts in the jurisprudence of the Court, the role and responsibilities of the state and individuals, key definitions and essential questions for policy makers.
Internal Notes: Contents: Part I, Manual on the wearing of religious symbols in public areas / by Malcolm D. Evans; Part II, Manuel sur le discours de haine / by Anne Weber.
