Politics of Religious Freedom

Noah Salomon

University of Chicago Press

This essay discusses the law and politics of religious freedom in the recently created state of South Sudan. Christianity often serves as a proxy for national culture and marginalizes indigenous African traditions and Islam. Categorizing the populace according to faith affiliations forecloses and solidifies religious boundaries in a country where boundaries are fluid and the socio-political order is in transition.

Keywords:   South Sudan, Christianity, Law and politics, Religious pluralism, Islam, indigenous religion, post-conflict political order
