“Succession in Islamic Law”

Date: March 30-31, 2023

Venue: Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, Hamburg, Germany

Abstract Submission Deadline: September 15, 2022

The conference addresses the role succession law played in Muslim communities in the past, how it unfolds today and what it implies for future generations. While family law has received extensive attention in Islamic law scholarship, succession law, often dubbed as the last bastion of the supposed immutability of Islamic law, has not been subject to similar scrutiny. This is surprising, given that rules and practices regarding succession are strongly intertwined with family structures and the economy.

The aim is to bring together different methodological approaches and theoretical perspectives (especially from law, history, economics, anthropology, Middle Eastern/regional studies, gender studies and sociology).
