Mark Fathi Massoud is Associate Professor in the Politics Department and Legal Studies Program at UC Santa Cruz. His research exposes how law matters to state authorities and, separately, how people experience and shape Islamic law and human rights in different parts of the world. His book, “Law’s Fragile State: Colonial, Authoritarian, and Humanitarian Legacies in Sudan” (Cambridge University Press), traces how colonial administrators, post-colonial governments, and the international aid community each used law to build stability amid political violence and civil war in Sudan. He is also principal investigator (with Kathleen M. Moore) of “Shari’a Revoiced: Documenting American Muslims’ Experiences of Islamic Law.” Professor Massoud is a former fellow of Princeton University’s Program in Law and Public Affairs. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2015 and a Carnegie Fellowship in 2016. More about Mark Fathi Massoud >
