Overview

The editors (director and deputy director Islam Program of the Center for Strategic and International Studies) present seven papers in which contributors from the Western and Muslim worlds explore issues of human rights from the perspective of the broad evolution of the human rights, while taking into account issues specific to the Muslim world. Contributors analyze the present state of the debate, address the question of whether there is a specific Islamic view of human rights, consider minority rights in Islam, consider questions of gender and the normative teachings of Islam, analyze causes of human rights violations in Muslim countries, and consider the possibility of reconciling human rights ideals with US foreign policy interests in the Muslim world.
