She works on understanding how the religious rules (of islam) impact the laws governing family in Morocco, based on the fact that islam is the religion of the State according to the Moroccan Constitution, and the main source of Family law in Morocco is islamic law. She believes that gender equality and islam are not contradictory, provided that an appropriate/innovative reading of the islamic texts is performed.
