The constitutionality of religious education in Uganda
MetadataShow full item record
The 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda is the first of Uganda’s constitutions to attempt to regulate church-state relations. Article 7 provides that Uganda ‘shall not adopt a state religion.’ This study attempts to discuss the jurisprudential value of this provision as it relates to religious education in Uganda. Borrowing from jurisdictions with a similar provision in their legislative framework, the study finds that state-sanctioned religious education that has the impact of endorsing or disapproving a particular religious instruction is unconstitutional.
