The Norwegian "Christianity, Religion and Philosophy" Subject "KRL" in Strasbourg
Lied, Sidsel
British Journal of Religious Education, v31 n3 p263-275 Sep 2009
This article presents the judgement and dissent of the European Court of Human Rights in the "Case of Folgero and others v. Norway" regarding the subject "Christianity, Religion and Philosophy (KRL)" in Norwegian state schools. The verdict, reached with dissenting votes of 9-8, states that parents' freedom of ensuring their children an education in conformity with their own religious and philosophical convictions is violated in "KRL". The article also discusses a possible way of thinking in the process of creating a common, unifying subject for teaching about religions and beliefs in the Norwegian state school system.
