Recognition of religion or belief in Suriname


  • Recognition and registration are amalgamated rather than ideally differentiated

  • Informational requirements seem appropriate but require monitoring to ensure that are not unduly extended or misapplied.

Positive elements:

  • Freedom of religion or belief is broadly upheld by the government in practice.

  • It is a positive sign that most religious groups are registered because this demonstrates a certain level of engagement with the system.


  • Establish a set of provisions for existential recognition, not just legal registration, and extend this to all belief systems.

  • Establish a recognition agency to manage the recognition system autonomously from state authorities.
