Centre of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law
The Centre for Islamic and Middle Eastern Law (CIMEL) is dedicated to building bridges and the mutual exchange of ideas and legal approaches between western academics and practitioners and colleagues in Muslim majority countries. In this increasingly globalised world, the Centre seeks to play its part in building a spirit of mutual respect and understanding between Europe and the Muslim world. The Centre's research takes this mission to heart.
CIMEL academics and practitioners seek to generate and disseminate rigorous, unbiased, and contextually focussed research of the highest academic and professional calibre. Members are specialised in a diverse range of law and law-related practices, ranging from Islamic law to the legal systems of Muslim majority jurisdictions.
The Centre's research is often interdisciplinary as it seeks to observe and understand the law amidst the growing complexity of social life in Muslim majority states and minority Muslim populations across the globe.
