Mohamed Arafa, SJD '13, Blogs about Current Draft of Egyptian Constitution
Mohamed Arafa, S.J.D. ’13, offered some details and analysis of Egypt’s draft Constitution of 2013 in a blog post on the blog of the International Journal of Constitutional Law and ConstitutionMaking.org, also known as iConnectblog.com.
Arafa notes that the latest draft “seeks to reshape the institutions of the modern state, entrench public freedoms and rights, create a real separation of powers, establish effective checks and balances,” and respect Egyptians’ moderate religious beliefs, he writes in the blog post.
Arafa is an assistant professor of criminal law and criminal justice at the Alexandria University Faculty of Law in Egypt. He taught a course in Islamic law at IU McKinney School of Law as an adjunct professor during Fall 2012 and Fall 2013.
