Karima Bennoune carried out nearly 300 interviews over three years with people from nearly 30 countries, from Afghanistan to Mali, to document peaceful, local human rights struggles against fundamentalism. These are some of the most important, and most overlooked, human rights struggles in the world today. From Pakistani peace activists to Tunisian feminists, from Chechen journalists to Algerian victims of terrorism, Bennoune will share their stories and provide a human rights analysis from these many frontlines.
Karima Bennoune is Professor of International Law at UC Davis School of Law, a member of the board of the network of Women Living Under Muslim Laws and a former Amnesty International Legal Advisor.
