Article 9, ECHR question
posted 3 years ago
My question is concerned with article 9 of ECHR and the case of R v Millais School Governing Body (2007). I wanted to learn if a specific manifestation of one's faith has to be 'intimately linked' (play foot) to their beliefs so as to be protected by Article 9, or should the extent of this linkage be considered at the stage of proportionality of any interference with that right?
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.
