A Tale of Two Worlds
Juridical Perspectives Between Islam and the West
Predominantly engaging the Department’s ‘Fundamentals’ research axis, Part one represents this project’s primary research outcomes, focusing on the most relevant juridical questions regarding the Islamic and Western legal perspectives. Part two undertakes a comparative constitutional analysis focused predominantly on Morocco, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia, in which theoretical questions will be examined dynamically. While contributing to legal philosophy, this project intends also to develop and define a new interdisciplinary approach, aiming to provide a starting point for novel analyses in research fields such as legal comparativism, legal pluralism, and constitutional law.
Finally, by formulating a new interdisciplinary approach, this project will provide a foundational discussion of a continuously evolving subject that will never be exhaustively explored. As such, it aims at broadening scholarly reflections on the relationship between the West and Islam, eventually placing these concepts within a suitably comprehensive and contextualized framework.
