Abstract

The case of Perovy v. Russia concerned a young boy who was, at the age of seven, subjected to a rite of blessing of a different belief than his own, on his first day of school. When the case was brought before the ECtHR, four out of three judges concluded that there was no violation of the parent's rights under Article 2 of Protocol no. 1, nor a violation their son's right under Article 9 of the Convention. This blog post places some question marks at the Court's reasoning.
