The Rule of Law in the Middle East and the Islamic World: Human Rights and the Judicial Process

Front Cover
Since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, much attention has been focused on an international standard on human rights applicable to all cultures. But is this standard observed by Middle Eastern and Islamic governments and enforced by their judiciaries? In this country-by-country survey, a range of distinguished scholars, practitioners and judges explore how the concepts of ""the Rule of Law"" and ""Human Rights"" are being debated and applied in the Middle East.
