The book explores the relationship between the Common Law and Shari'ah in both a historical and modern context. The book looks at the accommodation of Shari'ah Law within Common Law legal traditions and the role of the judiciary in drawing boundaries for secular democratic states with Muslim populations who want resolutions to conflicts that comply with the dictates of their faith whether through judicial oversight of private ordering of disputes such as faith based arbitration or the regulation of the public domain such as the criminal law.
Salim Farrar and Ghena Krayem consider the question of recognition of Shari'ah by looking at how the flexibilities that exists in both the Common law and Shari'ah provide unexplored avenues for navigation and accommodation. The issue is explored in a comparative context across several jurisdictions and case law is examined from selected jurisdictions with significant Muslim minority populations including: Australia, Canada, England and Wales, Singapore and the United States. The book examines how Muslims have framed their own claims for recognition and how Common Law judiciaries have responded within their constitutional and statutory confines and also within the contemporary contexts of demands for equality and universal human rights. Acknowledging the inherent pragmatism of the Common Law and its history of adapting to changing societal circumstances and conditions the book demonstrates that the controversial issue of accommodation of Shari'ah is not necessarily one that requires the establishment of a separate and parallel legal system.
This book provides a much-needed analysis of this very important subject for international business lawyers, including discussion of the jurisdictional and choice of laws issues arising from cross-border contracts of insurance and reinsurance concluded by electronic means. This book is the first published in England to devote itself to a detailed analysis of the choice of laws rules in the E.C. Insurance Directives. It is aimed at academics and practitioners, at private international lawyers and at insurance lawyers. The private international law rules of the E.C. Insurance Directives deal with the applicable law to insurance contracts covering risks situated within the EU. They do not deal with the applicable law to reinsurance contracts and insurance contracts covering risks situated outside the EU. This should be ascertained by reference to the choice of laws provisions in the 1980 Rome Convention on the law applicable to contractual obligations. Detailed discussion of these rules is also provided, and proposals for reform suggested.
