An internationally recognized scholar of Islam and human rights, and human rights in cross-cultural perspectives, Professor An-Na'im teaches courses in human rights, religion and human rights, and Islamic law. An-Na'im's work strives to promote two interrelated objectives, namely, a liberal modernist understanding of Islam, and the cultural legitimacy and practical efficacy of international human rights standards. Second, he is concerned with rendering scholarship in the effective service of positive social change. This concern is reflected in his work in human rights advocacy in general, as well as the development and implementation of several public policy-oriented projects.
