題名 Title:
How was the Egyptian 2012 Constitution Formulated? Reading Discussions on Islam in al-Ahram Newspaper

要旨 Abstract:
This presentation will offer a brief introduction to the trajectory of formulation of the Egyptian 2012 constitution. President Muhammad Mursi announced officially the establishment of the new constitution on 25th Dec. 2012, almost two years after the suspension of the 1971 constitution on 13 Feb., 2011. What events and forces affected the constitution-making process during this period? What opinions and discussions led to keep controversial articles such as the Article 2 on Islamic shari‘a as the main source of legislation and to add a number of new articles such as Article 3 on allowing Christians and Jews to follow their own shariʻas, Article 4 on enshrining al-Azhar, and Article 219 on giving a complementary explanation what Islamic shariʻa is. The presentation will use al-Ahram newspaper, one of the most widely distributed Arabic newspapers in Egypt, as the main source of information.
