Islamisk ret og minoritetsbeskyttelse: Molla Sali v. Grækenland

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Analysis of the decision of 19. December 2018 by the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights on the application of islamic law in Greece and on the balancing between rights of a minority groups vs. rights of the individual members of the minority.
The decision shows that member states cannot have legal systems that force members of a minority into following a different set of rules than the rest of the population. This is also the case, eventhough it is the minority's own cultural rules that they are told to follow.
Based on the decision, it should be considered whether other European countries are doing enough to make sure that members of religious minorities have access to justice, especially in situations where members of the minority are solving conflicts outside of the national legal system.
