Abstract:     
This article analyzes the treatment of the freedom to manifest one's religion in educational institutions in Uganda and the United Kingdom in light of recent judicial decisions by these two states highest courts, the Supreme Court of Uganda and the House of Lords. It focuses on three questions: First, are schools and universities obliged to respect the right of students to show their religion on campus? If so, can the educational institutions question the sincerity or legitimacy of religious beliefs held by students? Second, what are the limits on the freedom to display one's religion on campus? Third, is the approach adopted by the courts in Uganda and the U.K. consistent with each state's international human rights obligations?
