Conference: Criminal Law Developments in Muslim-Majority Countries

March 5, 2019 - March 6, 2019

Criminal Law Developments in the Muslim-Majority Countries in the Light of Interaction between Shari’a and Law

In response to a complex of internal and international factors, the judicial and legal structures of Muslim majority countries have changed drastically in the recent decades. Importantly, the experience of modern criminal law in the context of constitutional making processes in the Muslim countries has not been thoroughly discussed yet – particularly, from a comparative perspective. Against this background, this project aims to make a strong contribution to the debate on criminal law reform in the context of public demand for Islamic justice.
