Towards integrative religious education in Belgium and Flanders: challenges and opportunities

Patrick Loobuyck UGent and Leni Franken (2011) BRITISH JOURNAL OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION. 33(1). p.17-30
abstract
This article describes the way in which religious education (RE) has been organised in Flanders and Belgium, and gives attention to the problems and challenges that arise these days. We argue that the Schoolpact of 1958 which implies separate RE in different religions in public schools needs a revision. Therefore, we propose an alternative system, within the boundaries of the Belgian constitution that makes room for integrative RE as a new compulsory school subject in all schools.
