The Laicity of the State in Situation in Cameroon: Between Constant Interferences of Politics and Religious and Doubtful Neutrality of the State
Keywords:Secularism- Cameroon- Political-Religious Interference- Questionable Neutrality
Cameroon has constitutionally taken the option of secularism. But in everyday life, we see that politics and religion are strongly intertwined through interference, sometimes combination and sometimes pathology. In addition, the supposed neutrality of the state vis-Ã -vis the religious suggests that some actors in the religious segment are privileged over others.
