The veil ban affair requires far more extensive discussion and scholarship than what has been included in this website. Nevertheless, a fundamental issue with the ban prohibition is that it comes with an obligatory trade-off between freedom and secularity. An important question is that of which value should be prioritized over the other and whether the potential for integration is worth the trade-off.

As discussed throughout this website, there are plausible arguments for and against the French veil ban and one should not simplify an issue that snowballed throughout history. “Liberté, Egalité et Fraternité or Laïcité, Egalité et Fraternité?”, that is the question.
