Jurisprudence and Ethics in Islam

This chair is allocated to the Faculty of Law as well as to the Faculty of Philological and Cultural Studies. Our vision is to establish an interdisciplinary research platform that is characterised by high-quality research. Our main objective is to develop concrete solutions for the major challenges of societies characterised by Islam and to communicate these to the Austrian and European public. The research areas include, among others, institutional transfer, government failure, political economy of the Middle East, as well as legal issues of Muslim minorities in Europe.
