SON NAM NGUYEN

Abstract


The author observed and analyzed the changes in laws and phenomena in social life revolving around the state—religion relations through historical periods of Vietnam. On that basis, comments and issues that need attention for building this relationship in the future were marked. Methods of analysis, synthesis, and comparison were used to conduct this study. In this paper, the author consulted the kinds of literature of Vietnamese scholars related to the research issue. The result shows that the state—religious relationship in Vietnam should be built on secular principles, in the direction of supporting religious diversity and needs to maintain harmony founded on Vietnamese culture and society.
