Sharia in times of revolution

Title

Sharia in times of revolution

Description

With the Mubarak regime gone and the constitution suspended, many issues in post-revolutionary Egypt are up for discussion. The only field of law where the principles of the sharia still apply, family law and women's rights have emerged as critical topics in the public and political debate. Whether and how these debates affect the judicial process in courts all over the country is the topic of a new research project by anthropologist Nadia Sonneveld, called Sharia in times of revolution: A Longitudinal and Comparative Approach to the Role of Islamic Law in Egypt.
