Ali A. Allawi


Carr Center Middle East Lecture Series:

Carr Center Fellow
Dr. Ali A. Allawi

discusses:

“An alternative perspective-
An ethical reading of human rights in Islam”


Part of the Carr Center's Middle East Lecture Series

The purpose of these lectures is to outline a new pathway for the evolution of a doctrine of human rights and duties in Islam that would be based on an ethical and spiritual understanding of these notions. This would produce an alternative understanding of these concepts rather than the normative and jurisprudential- or Sharia-based- path it has taken so far.
