Tackling intolerance and discrimination with a special focus on Christians

Meeting in plenary session in Strasbourg, the Parliamentary Assembly expressed its concern following “numerous acts of hostility, violence and vandalism recorded in recent years against Christians and their places of worship,” these acts being often overlooked by the national authorities in Europe.
In a resolution adopted today, on the basis of the report by Valeriu Ghiletchi (Republic of Moldova, EPP/CD), PACE called for measures to ensure the effective enjoyment of the protection of freedom of religion or belief afforded to every individual in Europe, in particular through the application of the principle of reasonable accommodation.
PACE also called member States to promote a culture of tolerance and “living together” based on the acceptance of religious pluralism, protect the peaceful exercise of freedom of assembly, uphold the fundamental right to freedom of expression and publicly condemn the use of and incitement to violence.
