« The diversification of awqâf in modern Iran at the intersection of politics, economy, gender and public health »

Recent studies have tended to demonstrate that waqf laws were the main cause of underdevelopment and for this reason, most modern states abolished them or took them under their control (Ottoman Empire, Egypt, Iran, etc.) As public goods are now in the remit of modern institutions, waqfs no longer play an important role in society (Timur Kuran). This paper contends that despite the above factors there is a revival of waqfs in modern societies to respond to the growth of civil society, economic developments and the increasing importance of public health.
