About this journal

Muslim World Journal of Human Rights is the only peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the pressing question of human rights in the Muslim world. The journal approaches this complex issue through multiple interdisciplinary lenses: Islam and Islamic law, socio-economic and political factors, institutions, and gender and minority rights. The editors, Mashood Baderin (School of Oriental and African Studies), Mahmood Monshipouri (San Francisco State University), Shadi Mokhtari (American University), and Lynn Welchman (School of Oriental and African Studies) have created a unique academic forum to address real-world political issues and to encourage new methods in the field. Recent articles concern such topics as Women's Sexual Health and Rights in Senegal, Islam and Gender Justice, Human Rights Post-9/11, the Extension of Shari'ah in Northern Nigeria, and Human Rights in Islamic Malaysia.
Muslim World Journal of Human Rights is indexed in Current Abstracts, Index Islamicus, IBSS, International Security and Counter Terrorism Reference Center, Intute, PAIS International, Scopus, and TOC Premier.
