The COMOD LabEx supports the “Women’s freedom and rights in Islam” colloquium

From March 28, 2019 to March 29, 2019

The “Women’s freedom and rights in Islam” colloquium is being held by the Triangle laboratory and the ENS de Lyon, the COMOD LabEx and the Fondation Orient Mont-Pèlerin de Genève, on March 28 and 29, 2019, from 9 AM to 6 PM, at the ENS de Lyon (Descartes site, room D2 128).

The international gathering about “Women’s freedom and rights in Islam” aims to discuss a topic that remains as relevant as ever and reflects the interactions between religions and society, law and politics, the hermeneutics of sacred books and human values.

It addresses the perennial socio-political question of women’s status in our societies. Beyond how it is addressed in the media, there is a real demand for detailed, fundamental knowledge about women’s status in Islam at the beginning of the 21st century.

The status of women provides a very good indicator of the status of a society as a whole. Global demographic and economic data as well as human and cultural development indexes show that when the status of women improves, the society as a whole improves.
