Asnakech Ayele

I am a PhD researcher at Tilburg University, in a joint doctoral program called the European Doctorate on Law and Development (EDOLAD). The focus of my research is on Women's rights, Islamic law, and development in Ethiopia. I am looking at why women consent for Sharia law/Islamic law and Sharia Courts to settle disputes of a personal law nature and the implications on women's rights and their human development.
