Informing debates on Islamic law
Dr. Anver Emon, Canada Research Chair in Islamic Law and History, researches Islamic legal history to reflect on the deployment of Islamic law in the past and the present across different regions. The study of Islamic law has taken on new significance in recent years.
Through innovative detailed analysis, his and his team’s studies will aggregate debates on a variety of legal issues to better appreciate the implicit politics and contingency in the production of legal knowledge in Islamic law. The study will inform contemporary debates on Islamic law today and will influence how we teach law in a legally pluralist world.
