Islam and Human Rights

Islam and Human Rights

Explain and comment upon the proposition that there is nothing in Islamic law that contradicts the provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

This paper will provide an overview of the Islam and Human Rights debate. It will take into account different interpretations of Islamic law including critically

interrogating the view that Islamic law is a fixed pre-Modern system. It will also discuss selected reform projects and proposals. The paper will engage with the

augments over universalism and relativism. It will reflect on the character of the UNHR.

The paper will
select a Muslim state or territory as an example to be discussed in relationship to the question.

1. The essay in this module has a word limit of 6500-7,000 words. It must be typed, double-paced on one side of A4 paper. Essays must be written with footnotes in the

citation system explained in this module guide.
2. Essays are a piece of discursive writing where candidates will be expected to demonstrate the ability to write a sustained and systematic piece of original work.

Essays test the ability of candidates to identify appropriate material, to analyse and comment upon the material in order to construct an argument.
3 Essays in Islam and Human Rights offer the candidate the opportunity of engaging with a number of inquiries and investigations such as (a) theoretical issues (b)

doctrinal issues (either in Islamic law and or other jurisdictions) (c) case studies (d) a focus on particular rights (e) historical issues or situations (f) textual

analysis (g) analysis of the work of a particular scholar.
4. Essays must be based on systematic research. This means you will need to carefully record your research so that the results can be cited accurately in the essay.

All quotations must be clearly indicated as it is important to be able to distinguish your own work from the work of others. When using an argument or points that you

have found in your reading again this must be clearly indicated by referring the authors or authors by name in the text and citing them in the footnotes. Essays that

do not include citations will be given the mark of 0%.  The citation system is explained in the LLM Handbook and is reproduced below.
5. Essays that are composed mainly of quotations (even with the correct citations) will fail to obtain any marks as it is not possible to deploy other authors to write

your essay for you.
6. Essays are not acceptable in note form or written in bullet points. Essays require a robust paragraph structure.
