The ruling of Molla Sali v. Greece is not so significant in its outcome, but much more significant in that it involved two legal features that are relatively unknown among European jurists: interpersonal law and Islamic law. These are two systems of law with their own internal logical and coherence. The way that the Court argued its ruling provides interesting insight into how these two features may clash with systems of European civil and common law, particularly in the framework of human rights.
The forthcoming Journal in Islamic Law is a peer-reviewed Journal—published together with an online Forum—that features new scholarship in Islamic legal history, contemporary Islamic law, and digital Islamic law. The Journal is published biannually, and selects scholarship on the basis of excellence and novel contributions to the field. The Journal features long-form articles, essays, case notes, book reviews, and and new developments in digital Islamic law scholarship. The related Forum is an online platform for slightly less formal scholarly commentary, and is published throughout the year. The Forum provides a space for scholars to publish essays on recent articles and books, developments in Islamic law around the globe, and debate “roundtables” or “symposia” on topical issues of moment.
