Show Summary Details


This book is the culmination of a multi-year effort by the International Bar Association, the Salzburg Global Seminar, and a group of global leaders in law, education, and civil society. The book itself focuses on the intersection of, and often conflict between, international human rights law and Islamic law. This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the search for the meaning of ‘common ground’ in Islamic law and international human rights law. It then describes the ‘clearing ground’ approach adopted by the authors. An overview of the five parts of the book is also presented.

Keywords: Islamic law; human rights law; common ground; clearing ground
