Blurb/Shorttext:
International law was created and developed by Western states. Does that mean then that it is not applicable or relevant to the Islamic countries? Does it account for the numerous human rights violations in the Muslim world? This book is based on a comparative approach between international human rights law and Islamic law. It analyzes the content of legal texts from both bodies of law to offer solutions to reconcile international law and Islamic law. This work finds that there is an ideological dichotomy between international human rights law and Islamic law because international law embodies standards of behavior set by the most powerful states. In addition, Islamic law cannot be considered as a practical legal system because it fails to meet the criteria of a law, mainly due to the many different interpretations of the Quran’s religious teachings. The book then offers ways to apply and enforce international human rights law in Middle Eastern and North African states.
