"Islamic Constitutionalism for the 21st Century: Not Theocratic. Not Secular. Not Impossible."

  • Tuesday, February 12, 2013
  • 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • University Club, 803 State Street Madison, WI 53703


Registration is closed

Professor Asifa Quraishi-Landes of the University of Wisconsin Law School will be speaking to the group. Currently, she is working on a Guggenheim-supported project to articulate a new constitutional framework for Muslim majority countries that will answer both the Muslim impulse for a sharia-based government, as well as secular concerns that a non-theocratic system is important in order to respect human and civil rights. Quraishi-Landes specializes in comparative Islamic and U.S.constitutional law, with a current focus on modern Islamic constitutional theory. She is a 2009 Carnegie Scholar and 2012 Guggenheim Fellow.
