In Palestine, family law is a controversial topic publicly debated by representatives of the state, Sharia establishment, and civil society. Yet to date no such law exists. This book endeavors to determine why by focusing on the conceptualization of gender and analyzing “law in the making” and the shifts in debates (2012–2018). In 2012, a ruling on khulʿ-divorce was issued by the Sharia Court and was well received by civil society, but when the debate shifted in 2018 to how to “harmonize” international law with Islamic standards, the process came to a standstill. These developments and the various power relations cannot be properly understood without taking into consideration the terminology used and redefined in these debates.
Living and Negotiating in the Land of the Infidel
In Muslims in Spain, 1492-1814: Living and Negotiating in the Land of the Infidel, Eloy Martín-Corrales surveys Hispano-Muslim relations from the late fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries, a period of chronic hostilities. Nonetheless there were thousands of Muslims in Spain during this time: ambassadors, exiles, merchants, converts, and travelers. Their negotiating strategies and the necessary support they found on both shores of the Mediterranean prove that relations between Spaniards and Muslims were based on reasons of state and a pragmatism that generated intense ties, both political and economic. These increased enormously after the peace treaties that Spain signed with Muslim countries between 1767 and 1791.

Abstract

Recently, the world has been hit by a massive wave of refugees, precipitating the global refugee crisis, which is a pressing issue of global concern. Consequently, addressing this crisis needs innovative approaches. The aim of this article is to establish a relatively new initiative through combining two topics: the global refugee crisis and the crime of trafficking in persons. Accordingly, by combining these two topics, this article will try to find a new initiative that addresses a certain category of trafficked victims, namely trafficked refugees. By analysing the existing primary and secondary sources on relevant issues in relation to the crime of trafficking in persons and the issue of refugees, this article concludes that, despite the difficulties of addressing these issues and the current attempts in Jordan, it is still significant to identify trafficked victims among refugees as this might result in them receiving particular attention.

Abstract

Arbitration is the best method to resolve a dispute, due to the flexibility in its mechanism and issuing of a final judgment, known as an ‘award’. The winning party usually seeks to apply that award in the state where the assets of the losing party exist. In this regard, the New York Convention 1958 guarantees that the award is enforceable in the state where the winning party sought to apply. Jordan is party to the Convention; it has regulated its own arbitration law and has adopted the UNCITRAL Model Law 1985. However, not all provisions were adopted where specific provisions in Jordanian law relating to certain matters differed from the Model Law provisions. These differences may positively or adversely affect the arbitration procedure in Jordan.
