Keynote 2: Veil and Headscarf Bans as Harassment by Mathias Möschel

Over the past years, Muslim women have been rather unsuccessful in litigating headscarf or veil bans as a violation of religious freedom and/or direct/indirect discrimination on the grounds of religion both before the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). Companies have a vested interest in protecting their neutrality towards clients and may, therefore, ban the display of religious symbols. Given those failures, this talk addresses the question of whether sexual, religious and/or racial harassment provide a better avenue/legal characterization for addressing such claims.
