About the Authors
  • One of the most remarkable aspects pertaining to the legal bans and societal debates on the face veil in Europe is that they rely on assumptions which lack any factual basis. To rectify this, Eva Brems researched the experiences of women who wear a face veil in Belgium and brought her research results together with those of colleagues who did the same in four other European countries. Their findings, which are outlined in this volume, move the current discussion on face veil bans forward by providing a much-needed insider perspective. In addition, a number of legal and social science scholars comment on the empirical findings and on the face veil issue more generally.

    • Provides readers with an exceptional and unique insight into the experiences of face veil wearers in Europe
    • Discusses and compares the lived realities of women who wear the face veil as well as the legal situation in several European countries
    • Offers multiple perspectives on the topic via scholars from various disciplines who have engaged with the results of the empirical research
