Synopsis: Does the philosophy and practice of Islam stand in the way of realizing human rights? Ann Mayer argues that there is much in the evolving Islamic tradition that is favourable to the accommodation of human rights principles, but that various Muslim groups who are threatened by the demand for democratic freedoms have created obstacles to the exercise of human rights that purport to rest on Islamic principles, examining how they compare to international human rights norms.
