Other activities

I have acted several times as an expert witness in trials against persons suspected of Islamist terrorism, such as the trials against Mohamed Bouyeri, themurderer of Theo van Gogh, and the group around him.

In April 2007 I lectured on Sharia criminal law and human rights in several cities in Darfur, at the invitation of the Rule of Law Programme of UNDP Sudan. See

From February till June 2008 I was visiting professor and researcher at The Harvard Law School (Islamic Legal Studies Programme) and Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Near Eastern Languages and Cultures.

From May 2009 to December 2010 I was acting chair of Arabic studies
