Islam and Human Rights: Selected Essays of Abdullahi
Islam and Human Rights: Selected Essays of Abdullahi An-Na’im, Abdullahi An-Na’im, edited by Mashood A. Baderin, Routledge, 2010.
The relationship between Islam and human rights forms an important aspect of contemporary international human rights debates. Current international events have made the topic more relevant than ever in international law discourse. Professor Abdullahi An-Na’im is undoubtedly one of the leading international scholars on this subject. He has written extensively on the subject and his works are widely referenced in the literature. His contributions on the subject are however scattered in different academic journals and book chapters. This anthology is designed to bring together his academic contributions on the subject under one cover, for easy access for students and researchers in Islamic law and human rights.

An internationally-recognised scholar of Islam and human rights, and human rights in cross-cultural perspectives, Professor An-Na’im research interests also include constitutionalism in Islamic and African countries, and Islam and politics.
