Judicial Reform and the Principle of Independence – By Abdullah Fakhry Ansary
Publisher: Carnegie Endowment
This article discusses a series of changes involving judicial, legislative, religious, military, and economic institutions in Saudi Arabia, including the appointment of a woman as deputy minister of women’s education for the first time.
The author believes that these appointments constitute essential steps towards implementing the new judicial system laid out in an October 2007 law, one of the most significant reform moves King Abdullah has made so far.
The article goes on to discuss the effects of these changes on Jordan’s legislative capacity.
