Succession in Islamic Law

 30 – 31 March 2023


About the conference

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.
