Summary
"This book adopts a new methodological perspective that combines comparative law with geopolitics to understand the phenomenon of the English 'sharia courts.' This term is used as a geopolitical representation of specific Islamic ADR institutions. The geo-legal analysis illustrates the competition of the legal systems involved and brings you in the middle of the related conflict, where (official and unofficial) legal rules are used by various actors to defend their ideas of law and implement their strategies. Accordingly, the geo-legal operational analysis helps assess the possible changes occurring in the relationship between the legal systems and their substratum of values"--, Provided by publisher
