Abstract
Investigates how state and religion interact with each other, especially concerning how secular governments try to establish relationships with religions. The study focuses on two countries: the People's Republic of China and the Kingdom of Bhutan. Looks at the global trend on how state and religion interact in the twenty-first century and introduces several theories on the topic. Investigates the history of how each country related to religions in the past to make sense of government actions now. Discusses how governments "contain" religious activities through the works of various government institutions and agencies.
