RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS AT EUROPEAN UNION LEVEL AND THEIR PROTECTION BY THE PEOPLE'S ADVOCATE

Denis-Roxana GAVRILĂ

 Abstract

This paper aims to contribute to change society's perception of the capacity of the

People's Advocate to get involved in cases regarding religious freedoms. Human rights

cannot be defended in a society where intolerance exists and the human rights institutions,

such as the Ombudsman, are called upon to be more active in the public sphere, to take a

stand when these rights are violated by the authorities. Freedom of conscience, which

encompasses both freedom of thought, opinion and religion, is vital to human beings, and

their absence means the death of a society. Will the People's Advocate be able to deal with

the challenges of the new century, the turmoil and prejudices that have arisen in society

with the migrant crisis and take legal action against the abuse of the authorities?
