Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

Based on two recent cases at ECHR (Fernández and Syndicatul) and an american supreme court case (Hosana-Tabor) this article contributes to a special issue of OJLR on Ministerial exemption. The article is in favor of collective freedom of religion but warns against an extensive interpretation of religious autonomy and on re-introducing religious law as valid ground for exemptions from fundamental freedoms and rights
