Chapter Summary

The objective of this chapter is to chart the precise legal ramifications of the phenomenon of accommodation of religion. States that are constitutionally 'indifferent' to the question of religion can and must be distinguished from states that actively accommodate religion. These states have not established a religion as state religion, they do not distinctly support one religion over other religions nor expressly accommodate more than one religion simultaneously; yet, they do not explicitly or proactively seek to internalize the ideal of secularism or separationism either. In these instances of ostensible 'non-identification', state practice must be scrutinized closely in order to assess whether such states are de facto secular or non- secular.

Keywords: accommodation; non-identification; religions
