On 14th of March 2017 the European Court of Justice (ECJ) decided that an employer could dismiss an employee for wearing an Islamic headscarf, provided that the company had a written policy of political, philosophical and religious neutrality, and provided that the means of achieving that aim were appropriate and necessary. Put in the context of a recent development in Europe, and also together with other court decisions (for example the ECoHR case S.A.S. v. France), this marks a tendency towards a shift away from legal protection of religious and cultural minorities to protection of majorities and societal centers instead. So, this is where we stand… the majoritarian is the catastrophe. The question is then, how do we get out of the catastrophe? This paper explores the possibility of looking within in order to get out. Avoiding the liberal notion of ‘tolerance’ and ‘broadmindedness’, by which minorities are reached from without, and thereby acted upon, this paper instead suggests a change that starts from within. By reading Fanon’s notion of the non-subject person together with Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of becoming-minor, this paper will explore potentials in legal theory for decolonization of thought and subjectivity.
