Abstract

After analysing the features of the duty to reasonable accommodation, applied by the Supreme Court of Canada in relation to religion practises, the article aims to underline that the reasonable accommodation supposes an inclusive notion of State neutrality. This notion, while imposing to State authorities an attitude of impartiality towards religious convictions, does not imply the complete exclusion of religion from the public sphere. The second part of the article focuses on the jurisprudence elaborated by the European Court of Human Rights with regard to the manifestation of religious identity in the workplace. While recognising the principle of non discrimination, the Court seems really hesitant to identify a duty to accommodate in relation to religion practises. According to the thesis argued in the article, this trend is strictly linked with the principles elaborated by the Court on the State neutrality and on the religious pluralism of the public sphere. With special regard to the wearing of religious symbols the Court has been admitting some significant restrictions to the manifestation of religious identity in the public area.
