Interaction of International Law and Domestic Law : Between Theory and Practice -- Islamic Law in Saudi Arabia : Between Conservatism and Moderation -- Application of Islamic Law in Saudi Arabia -- Saudi Arabia Between Theory and Practice of International Law -- International Human Rights Law and Islamic Law in Saudi Arabia -- International Economic Relations and Islamic Law in Saudi Arabia -- International Arbitration and Islamic Law in Saudi Arabia -- International Commercial Arbitration in Saudi Arabia -- Conclusion and Recommendations
"This book analyses the general interaction between international law and Islamic law in the Muslim world today. It engages and interrogates literalist and conservative interpretations of Islamic law which often form the root of the tensions with international law. The work examines the Saudi Arabia textualist approach to the two primary sources of law in Islam, the Qur'an and Sunnah, and argues that a liberal approach of interpretation has become sine qua non especially now that myriad issues are confronting the Muslim world generally and Saudi Arabia in particular. Similarly, globalization has generated an unprecedented multi-culturalism, legal-pluralism and trans-border interactions in socio-economic and political relations. Therefore, Saudi Arabia, as the bastion of Islam and Islamic nations is faced with the imperative of adopting a liberal approach to interpretation of Islamic law with a view to accommodating a wide spectrum of other laws and cultures. The book provides a timely examination of the issue of modern Saudi Arabia, Islamic legal order vis-à-vis the contemporary concept of international law and international relations in specific areas such as international human rights law and trans-national economic matters. As such it will be of interest to academics and researchers working in Islamic Law, International and Comparative Law, Human Rights Law and Law and Religion"-- Provided by publisher
