Nimer Sultany, Reader in Public Law at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London

In this talk Dr. Nimer Sultany will discuss his book Law and Revolution: Legitimacy and Constitutionalism After the Arab Spring, which won the 2018 Book Prize awarded by the International Society of Public Law and the 2018 Peter Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship awarded by the Society of Legal Scholars. The book examines the role of law in the events that transpired in the Arab World since the ouster of Ben Ali in Tunisia and Mubarak in Egypt. It critically discusses the role of law during revolutionary upheavals and critiques liberal constitutionalism from the vantage point of Arab legal and constitutional experiences.
