EVENT: Temple Church – Panel Discussion & Book Launch: Islam & English Law

Posted May 29th, 2013 in Forthcoming events by sally

“Islam and English Law, ed. Robin Griffith-Jones (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2013) begins with the foundational lecture given for the Temple Church by Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, on an ‘inevitable’ accommodation between shari‛a and British law. The book’s following chapters – by lawyers, sociologists and theologians – look back on developments since the Archbishop spoke and forwards along trajectories, in family law and human rights, opened by his lecture. This evening we pursue these questions further. How are the rights of all citizens to be respected and their responsibilities met?”
