This volume of
Annotated Legal Documents on Islam in Europe covers Slovenia and consists of an annotated collection of legal documents affecting the status of Islam and Muslims. The legal texts are published in the original Slovenian language while the annotations and supporting material are in English. By legal documents are meant the texts of legislation, including relevant secondary legislation, as well as significant court decisions. Each legal text is preceded by an introduction describing the historical, political and legal circumstances of its adoption, plus a short paragraph summarising its content. The focus of the collection is on the religious dimensions of being Muslim in Europe, i.e. on individuals' access to practise their religious obligations and on the ability to organise and manifest their religious life.
Nedžad Grabus is Professor of theology at the Faculty of Islamic Studies, University of Sarajevo. At the University of Ljubljana, he is a member of the Institute for Ecumenical Theology and Interreligious Dialogue as well as part of the editorial board of “Unity and Dialogue”. He holds the position of Mufti of the Islamic Community in Slovenia.
