The Rule of Law in the Middle East and the Islamic World: Human Rights and the Judicial Process

In this country-by-country survey, a range of distinguished scholars, practitioners and judges explore how the concepts of 'the Rule of Law' and 'Human Rights' are being debated and applied in the Middle East.
