About the Authors
  • The common ground between religions could be fruitfully promoted in order to call for an effective protection of the climate system. Positioned at a junction of different worlds, this book is a multidisciplinary work on Islamic law, common law and environmental law. Looking at the past, present and future, the author suggests a paradigm shift starting from the common ground in order to propose a better future for environmental law in Muslim countries. As the first book to compare Shari'a and common law in field of environmental protection, it suggests a new path in comparative environmental law by recognizing the contributions of both history and spirituality.

    • Provides the first book length treatment of the comparison between Muslim law and common law in the field of environmental law
    • Mixes ecotheology, law, history, finance, and environmental studies to create a multidisciplinary approach to support the arguments presented
    • Blends theory with practice by recounting the experiences of environmental NGOs that have successfully used Muslim law to protect the environment
