Conference: “Succession in Islamic Law,” Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, March 30-31, 2023

March 30, 2023 - March 31, 2023

From the organizers:

The conference brings together scholars and researchers from various fields of social sciences, the humanities and law to share and exchange their experiences and research results with respect to the intergenerational transfer of property in Muslim jurisdictions. We are looking forward to offering new perspectives on the role of succession law in Muslim communities in the past and in the present, looking as well at its role for future generations. 

The conference is organized in five thematic panels; each panel will connect the scholarship, discipline, methodological approach and theoretical perspective of the invited speakers by means of overarching topics that all speakers will address. Speakers will have ample space to present the main aspects of their research. At the same time, the panels are meant to serve as a vehicle to foster a focused discussion between the panelists and between them and the audience. Each panel will be chaired by a moderator who will guide the conversation, facilitate the exchange and create a common frame of reference. Additional information will be published here shortly.

The conference will be held on site at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg.

You also have the possibility to join the conference online, please note that you will only be able to participate passively.
