MIN 419 – Human Rights and Islam

Those with an interest in Islamic law and governance on the one hand as well as human rights laws on the other will find this module ideal as it critically assesses the compatibility of Islamic teaching and law with internationally accepted standards of human rights. This course will provide a theoretical and conceptual discourse to build a comparative study of human rights in Islamic Law and the secular communities, in particular the West. It also examines the practice of human rights in Muslim Counties based on new definitions of good governance and human security with regard to barriers, interpretations and other influential elements.
