Tensions and Ambiguities in Muslim Family Law: the Case of Egypt

12/12/2019 @ 17:15 - 18:15

In this lecture, Monika Lindbekk examines how Egyptian judges, mediators, and arbitrators articulate notions of family, marriage and gender in cases of judicial divorce during the period 2008-2015. The lecture highlights two functions played by judges and other legal professionals. First of all, it is argued that Egyptian family court judges and other legal professionals enjoy considerable discretionary power in interpreting and implementing the personal status codes.

The lecture is open to everyone and will be followed by free drinks at Tabù. Join us!
