ISLAMIC JURISDICTION: SHARIE‘A COURTS AND THE FUTURE OF PUBLIC POLICY

  • Mohamed Arafa Indiana University McKinney School of Law (Indianapolis)

Resumo

Recently the issue of the Shariea courts has been drawing the attention of the Western media, especially in Europe, Canada, and the United States. Legal scholars and legal activists are quite reluctant to contribute to the discourse held mostly by reporters, religious figures and politicians. This could be why the matter is covered cursorily resting upon emotional, prejudiced and politically inspired debates and valuations. Moreover, the Shariea court’s jurisdiction is not always obviously specified and fundamentally various issues of these courts get mixed and sometimes led to the conflict of laws (choice of law) questions.
