Abstract
Twenty-five years after Kokkinakis, cases brought under Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights (echr) are still relatively rare. However, when the European Court of Human Rights (Strasbourg Court, ECtHR, the Court) rules on the right to freedom of religion or belief (hereafter ‘freedom of religion’), the decision or judgment is often, if not always, held under a magnifying glass. This does not come as a surprise. Not only is the freedom of religion case law an interesting matter for academic Strasbourg watchers, as this volume shows, in addition the Strasbourg Court is considered to be a standard setter for domestic debates. Indeed, both domestic judges and legislators regularly refer to the Court’s case law in matters concerning religion. Religion is one of the most debated topics of this era in Western
