An-Na’im, Abdullahi Ahmed
Muslims and Global Justice
(with a new foreword).
Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na’im (Prof of Law, Emory U)
. Philadelphia PA: U of Pennsylvania Press, Dec 2010 / 408p / $79.95.
Advances the theme of global justice from an Islamic perspective, critically examining the role that Muslims must play in developing a pragmatic, rights-based framework of justice. Discusses Islamic ambivalence on political violence and the need to improve the cultural legitimacy of human rights in the Muslim world. Advocates a people-centered approach to rights, which would empower local actors in negotiating the paradox of a human rights system that relies on self-regulation by the state.
