    Om Women and Peace in the Islamic World

    How realistic is the prospect of peace in the Muslim world? This question is the predominant focus for global analysis today in the contemporary times, but its debate frequently ignores the cultural and social complexity of the Muslim world, reducing it into the region to a system of states and selectmajor actors figures. This book addresses such a failing by exploring how the everyday interactions of women, in accordance with Islamic personal ethics, can offer the world a new interpretation of peace. Drawing upon original research from different parts of the Middle East, North Africa and Asia, including Iran, India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bosnia, Egypt and Sudan, the authors offer a refreshing new look at Muslim women as peacemakers, challenging any assumptions of Islam as an inherently violent religion. Such a timely work provides a new and important perspective on the role of Muslim women in forging new pathways of peace in the contemporary world.
