Two Day Course: Saturdays, 12 & 19 November 2011

What is sharia? How has it evolved? Should it play any role in society? What are the key legal issues across various Muslim contexts?

This thought-provoking, two-day course will begin by exploring the historical evolution of Muslim legal traditions, tracing their development to the varied Sunni, Shia and Kharijite approaches. It will then examine contemporary debates surrounding the relevance of sharia today, through an investigation of personal law reforms, human rights and other topical issues. Finally, the course will consider recent, widespread demands for the application of “Islamic law”, as well as the challenges posed by sharia for Muslim communities in the West.

The course will probe these issues in a reflective context, informed by history and current social and political developments.
