In the European Union (EU), respect for demographic minorities is considered a priority that it has become a prerequisite for accession to the EU, and member states are subject to a number of legal and policy strategies designed to protect demographic minority groups. The EU constitutes the ‘last court of appeal’ in many decisions pertaining to law and policy. While some works have been completed regarding the development of anti-discrimination law in the context of European integration, there has been no specific one dedicated to religious discrimination, which makes any analysis of the position of Muslims in the EU incomplete. This chapter explores Muslims and religious discrimination in EU law and policy, actions of the European Council and the European Commission related to religious discrimination, the European Council's creation of a Charter of Fundamental Rights, the European Court of Justice and trends in European legislation on discrimination.

Keywords:   Muslims, religious discrimination, European Union, law, policy, Charter of Fundamental Rights, European Court of Justice, European Council, European Commission
