Islam and Constitutions. The Law and Politics of Sharia Provisions - Online Course
12/05/2021 5:00pm - 26/05/2021 7:30pm
Why all the hype about Islam when drafting a constitution? Why are constitutions so central, to begin with? And what is the politics around references to Islam in them? What are, in particular, the sharia provisions, and how do they work?

Sharia provisions, in particular, are considered both in terms of their wording and the overall design.
