Religion Law in Taiwan

This appeared on H-Asia. Anybody know anything about this?


Query on religion law in Taiwan
From: Philip Clart

Dear colleagues,

updating an encyclopedia article on politics and religion in China & Taiwan. In the old version I had mentioned that during the 1990s efforts were under way in Taiwan to design a comprehensive law that would govern religious organizations (zongjiao tuanti fa). Some internet searches yielded the information that drafts of this law were introduced to the Legislative Yuan in May of 2005. Does anyone know what happened after that? Has the law been passed? If not, where does it stand now in the legislative process? I'd be grateful for any information you might be able to share.
