The Arab world is in turmoil, regimes are overturned, dictators are ousted, sent in exile, brought to justice or killed. Political events and the call for democracy are triggering constitutional reforms and changes in the legal systems. For a better understanding of Islamic law as a source of legislation the Peace Palace Library has compiled a Research Guide on Islamic Law. The keyword Islamic law provides direct access to material in the PPL collection. If you use the language filter “Arabic’ in  the catalogue, you find our Arabic books. Furthermore the Peace Palace Library has a steadily growing collection of books on Islamic Law and the municipal law of the Islamic countries in Arabic! Books from Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other countries on different subjects.
