Call for Abstracts: Islamic family law in the courts: experiences from the Muslim World and the West

Subject: Call for Abstracts
Islamic family law in the courts: experiences from the Muslim World and the West
We are interested in looking at how Islamic family law is interpreted and applied in the contemporary Muslim world , in Europe and North America. We want to emphasize diversity (between countries as well as within them), contextuality (how court decisions respond to the political and social context) and contrasts between law in the books and law in action.
We have already solicited proposals relating to Pakistan, Turkey,
Canada, Italy, Britain, and Spain. Proposals regarding any other country are welcome.
A multi-disciplinary approach is adopted: researchers in law, sociology, political science, anthropology and relate fields, are welcome to submit abstracts.
We believe this book will be useful for legal practitioners and social workers dealing with immigrants, as well as for students and scholars.
The deadline for abstracts , accompanied by a short personal bio-data, is 1 March  2011, while the manuscript submission deadline is May 2012. The publisher has not been contacted yet, but this will be done in thenext few months.
