European Court: Human Rights Convention Violated When French Authorities Failed to Assure Respect for Foster Child’s Birth Religion


In Loste v. France, (ECHR, Nov. 3, 2022) (full text in French) (Press Release summary in English), the European Court of Human Rights in a Chamber judgment held that France’s child welfare service violated Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights when it failed to assure that a Jehovah’s Witness foster family was respecting the Muslim beliefs of its foster child’s birth family. The Court’s decision also dealt with a separate issue–French authorities’ failure to protect the foster child from sexual abuse by her foster father. Law & Religion UK has more on the decision.
