Why have human rights been marginalized in the Arab world? How
do we gauge the relevance of human rights in the region, given the
political, social, and economic context? What are the practical and
theoretical obstacles to the implementation of these rights?
Human Rights in the Arab World: Independent Voices offers
perspectives from those at the forefront of research on human
rights and Islam, globalization, transnational advocacy, and the
politics of key states such as Egypt, Morocco, and Yemen. Some
chapters provide essential historical background to current
political realities, while others consider ways to confront this
region's practical and theoretical challenges to human rights. By
placing the question of human rights in the often tragic context of
Arab politics, the very real stakes are made clear.
