The Family

This team does not aim at merely collecting materials and comparing different legal regimes across the several countries involved in this project with respect to conflicts between religious and secular rules. Considerable work has already been done in this field, particularly by partners involved in the RELIGARE project. The research team will add to it indepth research on, among others, the reasons that may explain the desire for the application of sharia norms and the attitudes of an existing legal order towards it.
