Professor Mohamed Arafa, SJD '13, Speaks at Georgetown Conference in Qatar
Professor Mohamed Arafa, SJD ’13, spoke at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Services in Doha, Qatar, February 15 and 16 during a conference titled “Transitional Justice in the Middle East” hosted by the Center for International and Regional Studies.
Arafa served on a panel titled “Transnational Justice and the Criminal Liability in Fighting Corruption.”
“Transitional justice has received significant scholarly attention in many other parts of the world, focusing on authoritarian regimes moving toward democracy,” Arafa said. “While there has been limited academic exploration of transitional justice in relation to the Middle East, recent events in the region have reinvigorated interest in the topic.”
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.
