  • Iranian women's movement : narratives of dissent
  • Contemporary feminism in Iran : definitions, narratives and identity
  • Women's rights in Islam : an Iranian case study
  • Human rights, Islam and the debate around CEDAW.
This book explores the contentious topic of women's rights in Muslim-majority countries with a specific focus on Iran and the Iranian women's movement from 1906 to the present. The work contextualises the authorial self through the use of personal narrative and interviews. A new critique of Islamic law is produced through an in-depth study of the Iranian constitution, civil and criminal codes. The work presents a novel reconceptualization of the term 'Islamic feminism' by revisiting the arguments of various scholars and through analysis of interviews with Iranian women's rights activists. It is contended that the feminist movements can play a critical role in Islamic law reform and consequently the eventual implementation of international human rights law in Muslim-majority countries. What emerges from this study is not only a feminist critique of two major regimes of law, but also the identification of possibilities for reform in the future. The study transitions from the Iranian national context to the international by way of a comparative legal study of international human rights laws and Islamic laws. The book will appeal both to academics and human rights practitioners.

"En août 2006, les Iraniens ont célébré le centième anniversaire de la signature du firman par lequel Mozaffar od-Din Shâh (1896-1907) accorda la Constitution (mashrutiyat) à son peuple, transformant la monarchie absolue des Qâjâr en un régime monarchique constitutionnel. Son successeur Mohammad-'Ali Shâh (1907-1909) qui tantôt respecta cette Constitution tantôt la contesta, finit par s'y opposer. Le 23 juin 1908, il fit bombarder le Parlement (Majles), symbole de la monarchie constitutionnelle. Tabriz résista à ce coup de force et le mouvement constitutionnaliste prit des allures de Révolution qui finit par faire abdiquer le monarque absolutiste, le 16 juillet 1909, en faveur de son fils Ahmad Shâh. La Révolution constitutionnelle, événement important dans l'histoire contemporaine de l'Iran, a été, jusqu'à maintenant, étudiée par de nombreux chercheurs iraniens et étrangers. Cependant, plusieurs points concernant les signes précurseurs et Le déroulement des événements de cette Révolution ainsi que ses conséquences sur la vie sociale, culturelle et économique des Iraniens restent à élucider. C'est pourquoi l'étude critique des documents d'archives et leur publication comme la présente édition annotée des dépêches diplomatiques du consulat de France à Tabriz ntéressent les chercheurs. Contrairement aux Britanniques et aux Russes qui ont déjà publié certains de leurs documents au sujet de la Révolution constitutionnelle, les documents français n'avaient fait jusqu'à maintenant l'objet d'aucune publication ! Cette carence était frappante d'autant plus que la Révolution française a beaucoup inspiré les intellectuels iraniens au XIXe siècle ainsi que les Iraniens constitutionnalistes au début du XXe siècle et que la France, plus neutre en Iran que ses alliés russe et britannique, observait les événements avec plus d'objectivité. Les Archives diplomatiques françaises contiennent de nombreuses dépêches concernant la Révolution constitutionnelle en Perse. De cette masse de documents, ce livre présente 143 dépêches dont 138 de la plume d'Alphonse Nicolas, alors consul de France à Tabriz qui, dans ses rapports envoyés directement à Paris, décrivait attentivement la résistance de Tabriz. Les 5 dépêches restantes, qui proviennent de la Légation de France à Téhéran, fournissent, elles aussi, des informations de première main à la fois sur le siège de Tabriz par les forces royalistes et sur la conquête de Téhéran, en juillet 1909, par les révolutionnaires venant du nord et du sud du pays."--Page 4 of cover.

  • Access to justice perspectives : a conceptual analysis
  • The system of justice in Iran
  • Barriers in the path to justice
  • Access of women to justice and legal
  • Methodology : how to measure access to justice
  • Women's perceptions of access to justice.
This book offers a critical and in-depth analysis of access to justice from international and Islamic perspectives. Existing Western models have highlighted the mechanisms by which individuals can access justice; however, access to justice incorporates various conceptions of justice and of its users. This book evaluates the historical development of the justice sector in Iran and discusses issues including the performance of the justice sector, judicial independence, efficiency and accessibility, and normative protection, together with an analysis of barriers. It explores the legal empowerment of users, with a specific focus on women, and presents the findings of a survey study on the perceptions of Iranian women. This study is designed to focus on women's basic legal knowledge, their familiarity with legal procedure, perceptions of cultural barriers, issues that influence their preference for mechanisms of formal or alternative dispute solutions, and their level of satisfaction with their chosen courses of action.

Passed into law over a decade before the Revolution, the Family Protection Law quickly drew the ire of the conservative clergy and the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979. In fact, it was one of the first laws to be rescinded following the revolution. The law was hardly a surprising target, however, since women's status in Iran was then - and continues now to be - a central concern of Iranian political leaders, media commentators, and international observers alike. Taking up the issue of women's status in a modern context, Marianne Boe offers a nuanced view of how women's rights activists assert their rights within an Islamic context by weaving together religious and historical texts and narratives. Through Her substantial fieldwork and novel analysis, Boe undermines both the traditional view of 'Islamic Feminism' as monolithic and clears a path to a new understanding of the role of women's rights activists in shaping and synthesizing debates on the shari'a, women's rights and family law. As such, this book is essential for anyone studying family law and the role of women in contemporary Iran.

The current rise of Islamism throughout the Muslim world, Islamists' demand for the establishment of Islamic states, and their destabilizing impact on regional and global orders have raised important questions about the origins of Islamism and the nature of an Islamic state. Beginning with the Iranian revolution of the late 1970s and the establishment of the Islamic Republic to today's rise of ISIS to prominence, it has become increasingly apparent that Islamism is a major global force in the twenty-first century that demands acknowledgment and answers. As a highly-integrated belief system, the Islamic worldview rejects secularism and accounts for a prominent role for religion in the politics and laws of Muslim societies. Islam is primarily a legal framework that covers all aspects of Muslims' individual and communal lives. In this sense, the Islamic state is a logical instrument for managing Muslim societies. Even moderate Muslims who genuinely, but not necessarily vociferously, challenge the extremists' strategies are not dismissive of the political role of Islam and the viability of an Islamic state. However, sectarian and scholastic schisms within Islam that date back to the prophet's demise do undermine any possibility of consensus about the legal, institutional, and policy parameters of the Islamic state. Within its Shi'a sectarian limitations, this book attempts to offer some answers to questions about the nature of the Islamic state. Nearly four decades of experience with the Islamic Republic of Iran offers us some insights into such a state's accomplishments, potentials, and challenges. While the Islamic worldview offers a general framework for governance, this framework is in dire need of modification to be applicable to modern societies. As Iranians have learned, in the realm of practical politics, transcending the restrictive precepts of Islam is the most viable strategy for building a functional Islamic state. Indeed, Islam does provide both doctrinal and practical instruments for transcending these restrictions. This pursuit of pragmatism could potentially offer impressive strategies for governance as long as sectarian, scholastic, and autocratic proclivities of authorities do not derail the rights of the public and their demand for an orderly management of their societies.

  • Introduction
  • Law, state, and society in nineteenth century Iran
  • Law and justice in the Mashrutiyat : 1891-1911
  • The struggle to establish new laws and institutions, 1911-1926
  • The reforms of Ali Akbar Davar and beyond, 1926-1941
  • The new legal institutions in practice : 1906-1941
  • Epilogue: The judiciary under Mohammad Reza Shah
  • Conclusion.
Incorporating history, sociology, and rule of law studies, this book sheds light on an understudied but fascinating dimension of modernization in Iran, namely the emergence of a new legal system between the 1906 Constitutional Revolution and the end of Reza Shah's rule in 1941. While Iranian constitutionalism can be seen as part of a global trend of constitutional revolutions at the turn of the twentieth century, in Iran, an unusual institutional and historical background shaped a path to legal reform that was in many ways unique. Among other factors, the scholastic legalism of the Shi'i ulama and the considerable autonomy they enjoyed in administering the civil law in the nineteenth century made legal reform a particularly contested, difficult, and politically charged aspect of state building.

"This report says that many problematic provisions of the current penal code remain unaddressed in the proposed amendments. Some of the amendments would weaken further the rights of criminal defendants and convicts and allow judges wide discretion to issue punishments that violate the rights of the accused. Lawmakers and judiciary officials have cited the amendments as a serious attempt to comply with Iran's international human rights obligations."--Publisher's website.

"The 60-page report documents the experiences of dozens of rights defenders, journalists and bloggers, and lawyers whom security and intelligence forces targeted because they spoke out against the government. Some who took part in anti-government protests after the 2009 election had never been politically active before, but suddenly found themselves in the crosshairs of security and intelligence forces. Many Iranian refugees and asylum seekers interviewed by Human Rights Watch described difficult conditions and long processing times for their asylum applications during their stay in Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan."--Publisher's website.
