Recognition of religion or belief in Australia

According to the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Commonwealth of Australia are classified apathetic.

Recognition of religion or belief in Australia


  • Australia doesn’t have an established recognition system.

  • A key part of the discourse that recognitionism seeks to ignite is to analyse whether the position of a country like Australia is ideal or whether a country having an established recognition system that is dynamic is the ideal situation.

  • The sufficiency of state services for new and established groups based on belief is questioned, as is the government capacities for facilitating new developments in religion and belief.

  • The closest form of recognition is through the state’s bestowal of tax-exempt status.

Positive elements:

  • Freedom of religion or belief for both new and established religions is widely upheld.


  • Establish a set of differentiated systems for both existential recognition and legal registration.
