ARLETTAZ, Fernando. Religious Freedom and Conscientious Objection in Argentinian Constitutional Law. Estudios constitucionales [online]. 2012, vol.10, n.1, pp. 339-372. ISSN 0718-5200. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-52002012000100009.
The subject of this article is religious freedom in Argentinian constitutional law. In the first part, the paper exposes the precedents of the right in the Argentinian constitutional history, and considers its content, its limits and its relation with the equality principle. The situation of religious minorities is specially mentioned. In the secondpart, one aspect of the right is emphasized: conscientious objection. Its jurisprudential origin, its scope and its limits are then explained. The paper refers to the main normative sources in this matter (the constitutional text itself, ordinary statutes and case-law, in particular Supreme Court case-law), as well as the opinions of the specialized authors.
