Religion, the Rule of Law and Discrimination

The Rt Hon. Sir Terence Etherton
This address will explore the development of the law's approach at the intersection between, on the one hand, the manifestation of religious beliefs and, on the other, the protection and promotion of secular values.
It charts the shift from the historic protection of Christian orthodoxy, through the development of anti-discrimination legislation, to the recent domestic and European legislation and case law which have provided a coherent framework for the balancing of these rights consistent with the values of the Rule of Law.
 
This is the 2014 Gray's Inn Reading.
