Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im


Abdullahi An-Na'im, Emory University professor of law and a senior fellow in the Center for the Study of Law and Religion, comments in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on the recent controversy over the cartoon images of Muhammad. The images appeared in a Danish newspaper and created an outbreak of protests and violence throughout Europe and the Middle East.



The Center for the Study of Law and Religion is home to world class scholars and forums on the religious foundations of law, politics, and society. It offers expertise on how the teachings and practices of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have shaped and continue to transform the fundamental ideas and institutions of our public and private lives. The scholarship of CSLR faculty provides the latest perspectives, while its conferences and public forums foster reasoned and robust public debate.
