Civil Rights in Muslim Democracies
January 28, 2013
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Berkley Center 3rd floor conference room
Revolutionary transformations in the Middle East and North Africa have opened up new possibilities for democratization in Muslim-majority countries. Much will turn on whether and how countries in the region combine institutional stability and free elections in practice. This panel discussion will address a third ingredient of successful democratic states: equal rights of citizens under the law, with a focus on women’s equality, religious minorities, and freedom of expression. The discussion will feature Berkley Center senior research fellow Jocelyne Cesari, along with the center’s Jose Casanova, Daniel Brumberg (Georgetown University), and Nader Hashemi (University of Denver).
