"This book addresses the issue of the recognition of Islamic divorces in European states. Repudiation-based divorces are particularly notorious for their presumed violation of fundamental rights of women and are consequently often not recognized. The resulting limping of legal relationships affects other fundamental rights of the persons involved, such as the right to marry and the right of free movement. For this reason, the author scrutinizes classical Islamic divorce law and the contemporary divorce laws and practices of Egypt, Iran, Morocco and Pakistan, as well as the Dutch, English and French recognition policies and relevant EU (case) law. By introducing various soft and hard law solutions, she provides legal practitioners with the information and tools to tackle major shortcomings in the recognition of Islamic divorces. The book is therefore a must read for legal practitioners such as registrars, notaries and members of the judiciary, as well as academics"--Back cover.
