What not to wear: The“Islamic scarf“ in the European Court of Human Rights

This article regards the shadows of the protection that Article 9 of the European Convention of Human Rights should potentially guarantee and how the European Court of Human Rights deals with this significant issue. Specifically, the author argues that the Court is biased and influenced by its inevitable Christian-based structure and origins and, therefore, it cannot fairly and justly assess the cases that come before it. Author proves this point by presenting two of the Court’s most important decisions in the case of Sahin v Turkey and Dahlab v Switzerland.
