Call for Papers: Criminal Law Developments in Muslim-Majority Countries
The Research Institute for Criminal Law and Criminology at the University of Tehran is inviting abstracts for an international conference on “Criminal Law Developments in the Muslim-Majority Countries in the Light of Interaction between Shari’a and Law,” to be held on March 5th & 6th, 2019.
The judicial and legal structures of Muslim-majority countries have changed drastically in the recent decades. Importantly, the experience of modern criminal law in the context of constitution-making processes in Muslim countries has not been thoroughly discussed yet, particularly from a comparative perspective. Against this background, this conference aims to make a strong contribution to the debate on criminal law reform in the context of public demand for Islamic justice.

Please submit abstracts (700-1,000 words) online by Nov 15.
