The Role of the Judiciary in the Protection of Human Rights

Series: 

Established at the School for Oriental and African Studies in London in 1990, the Centre for Islamic and Middle Eastern Law (CIMEL) promotes the study and understanding of Islamic law and modern Middle East legal systems. Over the years, the Centre has developed a vast network of practitioners and scholars who participate in seminars and conferences on highly topical legal issues in the Middle East. By engaging this network, CIMEL has created an important forum for discussion on these issues. The CIMEL Book Series reflects these unique discussions-on such topics as on the legal aspects of the peace process or the role of the courts in the preservation of human rights-and also includes monographs on related topics by leading experts in the field.
