Muslim family law and its principles 15 regarding marriage, divorce, personal maintenance, paternity, and child custody is one of the most widely applied family law systems in existence today. A number of states have recently codified Muslim family law for the first time or have issued significant amendments or new laws, often spurred by interventions from women's rights groups and other advocacy organisations. Drawing on original legal texts and explanatory statements as well as extensive secondary literature, Welchman places these changes in a contemporary global context that internationalises the domestic and regional particularities of Muslim family law. With a full bibliography and an appendix providing translated extracts of the laws under examination, this title considers laws from the Gulf States to North Africa in order to illustrate the legal, social and political dynamics of the current debates.[-][-]Combines an examination of Muslim women's rights in Arab states with discussions of the legal and public debates raised during the processes of their codification and amendment This title is available in the OAPEN Library - http://www.oapen.org.
