Marian Oppenheim Hall
Jewishness and equality law in the UK
Martin Chamberlain
Edinburgh Jewish Literary Society
Martin Chamberlain will use UK case law to examine how the law understands Jewishness and Jewish religious practice. Why are Jews and Sikhs, but not Muslims or Christians, protected by the prohibition on race discrimination? What does this tell us about the common misconception that antisemitism is not (really) racism? How does UK jurisprudence compare to that of the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the EU on the place of religion in the public square? How does the prohibition on sex discrimination affect Jewish, Muslim and other schools?
