Egyptian Law and the European Court of Human Rights

Contributing Authors: Saba Mahmood & Peter G. Danchin

Synopsis: This module contains an article by Saba Mahmood and Peter Danchin on religious liberty.

Summary: Looking at the involvement of the state in “substantive judgements about religion, a domain toward which it claims to be neutral,” the article compares the language of judgements coming from the European Court of Human Rights with that of the Egyptian Supreme Administrative Court, tracking underlying notions of public order and normative structures of religious liberty.
