Religious Persecutions and Asylum Law in the case law of European Supranational Courts
ABSTRACT: The rise of restrictions on religious freedom, resulting in the denial of fundamental rights in many parts of the world, has caused an increase in asylum requests in many European countries. This article compares and contrasts the approaches of the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union, highlighting common approaches and divergences. Part I introduces the topic. Part II discusses the case law of the European Court of Human Rights. Part III compares and contrasts the approach of the Strasbourg Courts with a recent decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union. Part V concludes arguing for the need of further development of the case law of the European Court of Human Rights in line with the recent developments in EU law.
