PACE recognizes facts of discrimination against Christians in Europe

February 6, 2015

On 29 January 2015, Resolution 2036 (2015) tackling intolerance and discrimination in Europe was adopted at the winter session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

The Parliamentary Assembly called on the Council of Europe member States to ensure that the right of all individuals to freedom of religion and belief is respected, uphold the freedom of conscience in the workplace, promote reasonable accommodation so as to encourage the media to avoid negative stereotyping against Christians, in the same way as for any other group, and respect the right of parents to provide their children with education in conformity with their religious convictions.

On 3 December 2-14, the PACE Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination unanimously supported a repost on discrimination of Christians in Europe prepared by a representative of Moldova, Valeriu Ghiletchi.
