The Belgian 'Burqa Ban' confronted with insider realities

Eva Brems UGent, Yaiza Janssens UGent, Kim Lecoyer, Saïla Ouald Chaib UGent, Victoria Vandersteen and Jogchum Vrielink (2014) The experiences of face veil wearers in Europe and the Law. In Cambridge Studies in Law and Society p.77-124
abstract
This chapter confronts the stated motives of the Belgian legislator who banned face covering in public with the experiences and views of women who wear the face veil in Belgium. Contrasting the insider experiences of the women concerned with the assumptions of the Belgian legislator, it argues that on account of its relying on erroneous assumptions, the Belgian ban does not actually serve its stated purpose, that it is disproportionate and that it denies procedural justice.
