Islam and Constitutions. The Law and Politics of Sharia Provisions - Online Course
12/05/2021 5:00pm - 26/05/2021 7:30pm
AKU-ISMC
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? This online course introduces participants to the conceptual foundations of constitutional law, the articulations of State-Islam relations in contemporary constitutions, and the various models of sharia provisions in a comparative perspective. Sharia provisions, in particular, are considered both in terms of their wording and the overall design.
