Islam and Democracy: Toward Effective Citizenship

The Center conducted all-day workshops and seminars in Irbed, Karak, Mafreq, Jarash, Ajlun, and Tafelah, Jordan.  The workshops used the Islam & Democracy: Toward Effective Citizenship text to educate about the basic principles of a democracy and how they relate to political Islamic pillars and to discuss how Islam supports human rights and democracy.  Seven Jordanian experts and scholars from various institutes and organizations presented at the workshops; all were trained by Street Law staff in the beginning of 2006.
