      Personal status laws remain a highly politicized area of debate in the Middle East, as the arena in which the contentious issues of women's rights, religion and minority groups meet. This is especially so when it comes to divorce. In Tunisia, with the moderate Islamist party Ennahda winning the first elections following the 2011 revolution, questions of religion in public life have gained greater primacy. The country is often hailed for its progressive personal status code, seen as an exception to the practice in many other Muslim countries. However, the legal system contains many gaps and leaves much room for interpretation. Maaike Voorhoeve investigates whether the ostensibly secular principles enshrined in Tunisia's legislation are in fact implemented in divorce cases, or whether judges frequently turn to custom or Sharia as their primary sources of guidance. 'Gender and Divorce Law in North Africa' therefore sheds light on the wide-reaching debate concerning the role of Islam and Sharia in the public, political, legal and private spheres
