(Re)Arrangement of State/Islam Relations in Egypt’s Constitutional Transition

By Gianluca Paolo Parolin


After briefly framing state/shari‘ah relations in pre-2011 Egypt, the paper (1) describes the negotiations behind the (re)arrangement of shari‘ah-provisions in the new constitution, (2) analyzes the content of the new provisions in their Hegelian relation to the previous Supreme Constitutional Court jurisprudence—expounding on the complex articulation of the explanatory note to art. 2 (art. 219)—, and (c) considers the ramifications of the new arrangement, focusing on the impact of the mandatory referral to al-Azhar (art. 4)
