Welcoming Our 2022-2023 Visiting Fellows

Dear Friends, 

We are very pleased to extend a warm welcome to the 2022-2023 Visiting Fellows of the Program on Law and Society in the Muslim World

This year, our Visiting Fellowship Program brings another cohort of leading scholars and practitioners to Harvard Law School to study a wide array of topics, from feminism and women’s movements in the Muslim World to legal history and social activism. We are particularly excited to welcome all our fellows to join us in person on campus and bring their expertise, insights, and passion to our broader community. 

We look forward to announcing further opportunities to engage with our fellows in the coming weeks!
