Recognition of religion or belief in Lesotho

According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Kingdom of Lesotho are classified apathetic.

Recognition of religion or belief in Lesotho


  • There exists widespread unstructure in the recognition system of Lesotho.

  • There are no distinct procedures for the recognition of religious entities; there are no procedures for existential recognition, only legal registration which is open to secular entities as well.

Positive elements:

  • The government generally upholds freedom of religion or belief.


  • To become receptive, establish a recognition system that bestows sufficient provisions for both existential recognition and legal registration simultaneously.

  • To become dynamic, establish a recognition agency independent of government that acts to manage the established recognition system, to ensure its inclusivity, and to encourage the diversity of belief.
