NGUYEN HONG DUONG

Tóm tắt


The article mentions the Communist Party and State of Vietnam renovation process views and policies regarding religion for the past 40 years (1975 - 2015). With diachronic approach, the author has analyzed the innovation process in two phases: 1975 - 1990 and 1990 - 2015. The author argues that due to historical conditions, some State and Communist Party guidelines and policies towards religion revealed shortcomings before "Đổi mới" (Renovation, 1986). The second period is considered the breakthrough stage in the "rediscovery of religion" with the view of Resolution No. 24-NQ / TW "Religion is a long time issue. Belief and religion are the spiritual needs of a majority of people. Religious morality is much consistent with the building of a new society". Additionally, the article is a study in innovation policy with "some peculiar religion" such as Protestant, Muslim, and Buddhist Theravada Khmer. Based on study results, the author reviews achievements and lessons from innovation process.
