Saudi Arabia: Human rights on the syllabus

Crossroads Arabia comments on a report that Saudi Arabia may introduce human rights on the syllabus for law students: “As well as teaching what are deemed to be the ‘Universal Islamic Rights of Man’, it is also important to teach the ‘Universal Rights of Man’ as put forth by the UN. Pointing out where they differ is critical to merging Saudi Arabia’s society into the global society.”
