Church-State Relations in Zambia

A Policy Proposal


Alick Banda

This book endeavours to set forth the Catholic Church understanding of Church-State relations and therein proposes a framework of Church-State relations in Zambia, to regulate areas of common interests between the Church and the State, and to specify areas of Church concern where State intrusion is limited. The work further proposes an institution to implement the framework proposal as well as monitor legislation and policies that impact on Church-State relations.
