Title : Islamic family law

Description :
Islamic Family Law is a large-scale project conducted by the Law and Religion Program of Emory University. It seeks to examine the worldwide application of Islamic family law and to assess the feasibility of family law reform within particular communities of Muslims in their own socio-legal contexts. This home page contains information about the project, the contact details of the key figures behind it, a discussion forum and a selection of academic papers. It also provides the cultural and legal profiles of the jurisdictions under study. The project is directed by Dr Abdullahi A. An-Naim and is sponsored by the Ford Foundation. The resource would be particularly interesting to students of Islamic Law and those undertaking comparative work.
