Sharì'a in Europe: aspects of comparative law

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Islamic Minorities; Sharì'a; Personal Law; Freedom of Religion; Alternative Dispute Resolution.

The purpose of this paper is to draw the reference framework, not only legal, of the complex expressions of the Sharì'a in European legal systems. The Islamic communities in Europe invoke the application of Sharì'a for the resolution of the controversies that pertain to the area of personal law (family, marriage, succession). The nerve center lies in the balance between the protection of the freedom of religion in its various expressions and the respect for Western legal values. The tools for tearing up the tensions are entrusted to the system of courts or to alternative forms of dispute resolution.
