Birzeit’s Working Papers Series in Legal Studies publishes two new studies

The Constitutional Law Unit in the Faculty of Law and Public Administration at Birzeit University, under the support and supervision of the H.H. Shaikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani Chair in Constitutional and International Law, has published three new papers in Birzeit’s Working Papers Series in Legal Studies.

Birzeit’s Working Papers Series in Legal Studies is an electronic series that publishes legal research papers – specifically in the fields of public law – that would benefit students, professors, researchers, and professionals in these disciplines in Palestine and the Arab World. The series comprises five categories: Translated Articles; the Comparative Arab Constitutional Law Encyclopedia Project; Master’s Research Papers; Conference Papers; and Position Papers.

The first paper, entitled “The Right to Education,” was submitted under the Comparative Arab Constitutional Law Encyclopedia category. The paper, written by Newar Bdair, outlined a study comparing international and constitutional regulations concerning the right to education.

The second paper, written by Saja Majdoubeh, was submitted under the Master’s Research Papers category. Entitled “The Individual’s Religious Identity and His/Her Identity Card,” the paper compares global and Palestinian trends within a “global model of constitutional rights” context. Specifically, the paper’s focal point is the removal of religion from identification cards, and how it is construed under a “global rights” model.

You can access the above-mentioned papers via the links provided on the SSRN website. You can also view the topics of upcoming releases by visiting the Series’ page on the University’s website.
