Title:Freedom of religion under the Sudan constitution and laws
Author:Tier, Akolda M.
Periodical:Journal of African Law
Geographic term:Sudan
Subject:freedom of religion
Abstract:The right to freedom of religion and belief is closely linked with the rights to free expression of opinion, to peaceable assembly and freedom of association. In particular, they share the common purpose of assuring to an individual freedom of choice. Indeed, the essential similarity between these rights was reflected in their embodiment in a single article in earlier Sudan constitutions. A consequence of these similarities is that the denial or infringement of any one of them has further ramifications on the other rights apparently left intact. Accordingly, the present study, while focusing on freedom of religion, its necessity and its recognition and protection under the constitution and the laws, also makes brief excursions into the related rights of freedom of opinion, of assembly and of association.
