Professor Anil Kalhan's Forthcoming Publication Guides’s Analysis of Egypt’s Transition to Democracy

June 20, 2012

A June 20 article by constitutional law scholar Michael Dorf on discussing the threats to judicial autonomy in Egypt as it transitions to democracy cited Professor Anil Kalhan's forthcoming publication, "'Gray Zone' Constitutionalism and the Dilemma of Judicial Independence in Pakistan," for insights on how the Pakistani military's influence on the judiciary there might inform Egypt's attempt to solidify judicial independence in its own state. 

Kalhan's paper examines the "disequilibrium, and continued military dominance," that sometimes limit the power of the judiciary in Arab democracies to rein in the military. cites Kalhan's article for articulating how the "network of government and private interests affiliated with the military" may present a challenge to establishing true judicial independence in Egypt.

Kalhan’s principal interests include comparative and U.S. constitutional law, immigration law, international human rights law and criminal law.
