Des sujets en rupture : double religion et athéisme à l'île Maurice

Abstract : While Mauritius is often described with laudatory terms like “the rainbow nation”, in this article I focus on the problematic way in which people manage (or not) to live together, because an in-depth analysis of the matter contradicts the country’s reputation. In order to address issues of otherness, I show how individuals can be estranged from society and their relationship to secularism, atheism, or the phenomena of dual religion (mostly Christianity and Hinduism), which obstruct, disrupt or contradict the presentation of the Mauritian multicultural model as harmonious.
