One of the most remarkable aspects pertaining to the legal bans and societal debates on the face veil in Europe is that they rely on assumptions which lack any factual basis. To rectify this, Eva Brems researched the experiences of women who wear a face veil in Belgium and brought her research results together with those of colleagues who did the same in four other European countries. Their findings, which are outlined in this volume, move the current discussion on face veil bans forward by providing a much-needed insider perspective. In addition, a number of legal and social science scholars comment on the empirical findings and on the face veil issue more generally.

"Brems' edited work is a timely edition to the current landscape of literature focused on understanding the recent nationwide bans of face veils in both France (2010) and Belgium (2011) ... this book draws on an academically diverse group of scholars to contribute a nuanced analysis on the current debate surrounding face veil wearers in Europe and I think it would be suitable for a university class as well as anyone interested in expanding their perspective on the current issue of legal bans on the face veil in Europe today."
Lauren McKown, Nordic Journal of Migration Research
