Asifa Quraishi-Landes is an associate professor of law at the University of Wisconsin Law School, specialising in comparative Islamic and US constitutional law, with a current focus on modern Islamic constitutional theory. She is a 2009 Carnegie Scholar and 2012 Guggenheim Fellow. Currently, she is working on "A New Theory of Islamic Constitutionalism: Not Secular. Not Theocratic. Not Impossible", a project which seeks to articulate a new constitutional framework for Muslim majority countries that will answer both the Muslim impulse for a sharia-based government, as well as secular concerns that a non-theocratic system is important in order to respect human and civil rights.
