Recognition of religion or belief in Honduras

According to the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Republic of Honduras are classified receptive.

Recognition of religion or belief in Honduras


  • Monitoring the potential misuse of subjective language in the legislation is important to continue.

  • The requirement of annual reporting of financial and operational activities to remain registered is not best practice but may not be restrictive as long as the information provided to the government is not manipulated or misused.

Positive elements:

  • Freedom of religion or belief is broadly upheld by the government with few if any restrictions.

  • Horizontal recognition is in effect.


  • Establish provisions for existential recognition in addition to the already existent procedures for legal registration; ensure that these provisions are bestowed universally and equally across traditional and non-traditional belief systems as well as to NRMs, and at multiple levels of activity.

  • Remove any remaining minor restrictive policies within the recognition system.

  • To become dynamic, the Honduran government would need to allow for the establishment of a recognition agency to manage it recognition system and its activities independent of government involvement in order to ensure that freedom of religion or belief maintains its status of being ectopolitical.
