Dr. Zubair Abbasi, Assistant Professor at the Shaikh Ahmad Hassan School of Law (SAHSL) recently published his research article ‘Colonial State and Muslim Institutions: History of Regulatory Framework for Awqāf (religious endowments) in British India’ in the book Charities in the Non-Western World: The Development and Regulation of Indigenous and Islamic Charities (Routledge: London 2013). The book has been edited by Brown, Rajeswary Ampalavanar, and Pierce, Justin.
The book examines the operation of local charities at a regional, localised and global level. The various chapters focus on the adaptation, accountability and operation of charities across a wide range of countries as China to Indonesia, Thailand, Iran, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Lebanon and Turkey. It examines the ownership, participation and accountability of charities in a regional, localised and international context, and draws on the experiences and operation of charities. By presenting a cross-disciplinary exploration of the operation of charities, the book offers an interesting insight into the functioning and identification of the influencing factors impacting the operation of charities.
