Recognition of religion or belief in Guyana
According to the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Co-operative Republic of Guyana are classified ambiguous.
There exists no official recognition system for belief systems and religious communities in Guyana.
Places of worship are the primary means of registration and these all must register with the Deeds Registry which is a form of mandatory registration; informational requirements associated with this application seem appropriate but require monitoring to ensure no misuse takes place; from there, a religious organisation can operate under the name of the place of worship.
The great deal of unstructure existent within the Guyanese system means that it is classified as ambiguous with receptive elements.
Freedom of religion or belief is broadly protected in practice by the government.
Horizontal recognition is in effect.
Establish a distinct recognition system for different forms and levels of religion and belief.
Remove all forms of unstructured by clarifying unaddressed topics and issues.
Revoke the rule of mandatory registration of places of worship and disestablish the present system as being oriented on places of worship.
To be classified as dynamic, a recognition agency would need to be established the manage the recognition system in a way that is independent of the government to ensure no politicisation or manipulation takes place.
