Gender equality is a key principle of human rights and political security. But how are gender equality and human security ensured in societies struggling with legacies of civil war and political violence? This lecture reveals how, in a country where many observers presume law and security are absent, women are turning to Islam’s foundational sources—the Qur’an and the Hadith—to promote women’s rights and human and political security.  A reception will follow.

Mark Fathi Massoud is Associate Professor of Politics and Legal Studies at UC Santa Cruz and the author of Law’s Fragile State: Colonial, Authoritarian, and Humanitarian Legacies in Sudan.

Sponsored by the IHC’s Social Securities series and the Walter H. Capps Center for the Study of Ethics, Religion, and Public Life
