Abstract

While debate continues regarding the political, economic, social and cultural effects of Brexit on the United Kingdom (UK), this chapter studies the way in which freedom of religion and belief, one of the most important freedoms as regards social identity, will be affected. In particular, when considering rise in hate crime following the European Union (EU) Referendum, people are wondering what is happening to the British life style, traditionally founded as it is on tolerance. Hence, efforts will be made in this chapter to find answers to the following questions: will Brexit really shake the existential conditions of the freedom in question by its very foundations? Are the Government’s plans to counter the rise in hate crimes linked to Brexit sufficient? How should hate crimes be dealt with?
