Recognition of religion or belief in Saint Lucia
According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in Saint Lucia are classified apathetic.
Recognition and registration are amalgamated rather than ideally differentiated; a focus is placed on legal registration with few to no provisions for existential recognition; only a semblance of recognition is made available for groups through their exemption from taxation.
Freedom of religion or belief is generally upheld by the government.
To become receptive, establish a revitalised recognition system that can provide both existential recognition in addition to legal registration simultaneously, to all belief systems and their derivatives, and at different levels of recognition.
To become dynamic, establish a recognition agency that has the capacity to manage the re-established recognition system in a way that is independent of the government.
Ongoing discrimination levied towards Rastafarians and Muslims are issues that should be resolved through greater religious education and mutual recognition.
