Religious Diversity Challenges

Codes of dressing are often the centre of attention when it comes to accommodating religious minority claims

When it comes to accommodating religious minorities in the public space, dressing codes have often been at the centre of the discussion, particularly so in schools. This short video presents two contested cases, one at Denbigh in the United Kingdom and the other at Smolyan in Bulgaria, and how they were solved.

These examples were taken from Triandafyllidou, A. (2012) Handbook on Tolerance and Cultural Diversity in Europe. For further information see also the ACCEPT-PLURALISM project.
