Adjudicating Family Law in Muslim Courts Summary


Adjudicating Family Law in Muslim Courts by Edited by Elisa Giunchi (University of Milan, Italy)

While there are many books on Islamic family law, the literature on its enforcement is scarce. This book focuses on how Islamic family law is interpreted and applied by judges in a range of Muslim countries - Sunni and Shi'a, as well as Arab and non-Arab. It thereby aids the understanding of shari'a law in practice in a number of different cultural and political settings. It shows how the existence of differing views of what shari'a is, as well as the presence of a vast body of legal material which judges can refer to, make it possible for courts to interpret Islamic law in creative and innovative ways.

Adjudicating Family Law in Muslim Courts Reviews


"These two volumes [Adjudicating Family Law in Muslim Courts and Muslim Family Law in Western Courts], taken together, represent a needed contribution to the field of Islamic studies, particularly in relation to Islamic law.

"The pragmatic approach of the two volumes, taking into account the different faces of legal practices in several Muslim and Western countries, is [...] refreshing, and can provide a valuable contribution to the understanding of phenomena which are too often interpreted through the lenses of prejudices." - Luca Ozzano in Politics, Religion and Ideology
