About this journal

Muslim World Journal of Human Rights is the only peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the pressing question of human rights in the Muslim world.

The editors, Mashood Baderin (School of Oriental and African Studies), Mahmood Monshipouri (San Francisco State University), Shadi Mokhtari (American University), and Lynn Welchman (School of Oriental and African Studies) have created a unique academic forum to address real-world political issues and to encourage new methods in the field. Recent articles concern such topics as Women's Sexual Health and Rights in Senegal, Islam and Gender Justice, Human Rights Post-9/11, the Extension of Shari'ah in Northern Nigeria, and Human Rights in Islamic Malaysia.
Muslim World Journal of Human Rights is indexed in Current Abstracts, Index Islamicus, IBSS, International Security and Counter Terrorism Reference Center, Intute, PAIS International, Scopus, and TOC Premier.

The German Law Journal on Critical Legal Thinking

Dear Readers:

We are pleased to announce that the new issue of the German Law Journal, Review of Developments in German, European and International Jurisprudence is now available at We do apologize for this delayed message. While the Journal has been on the website for a week already, we had problems with the distribution listserver.

It is with considerable excitement, that we announce this new issue to you. Logging in at just under 600 pages, it brings to you - for the first time online - the conference proceedings of the famous comparative legal theory conference, held in Bremen (Germany) in 1986, between scholars from the Law Schools at Bremen and the University of Wisconsin. The proceedings were subsequently published in a much revered "blue" volume, by Nomos Publishing House in Baden-Baden, Germany. The conference brought together leading figures in critical legal thought from both the United States and Germany for a series of discussions on the evolution of legal thought in both countries from the 19th century onwards into the present, reflecting on the roles of courts, parliaments, law schools, the profession and students in the shaping of legal culture. The conference occurred at a crucial time in the development of legal thought - and practice. The post-World War II social consensus and the welfare state had come under considerable pressure, 'law and economics' had begun its journey to become the most influential 'law & society' movement, deep-reaching political transformations were under way, in the United Kingdom, the US and in Germany conservative administrations had taken the reign, and meanwhile the globalization of markets had begun to unfold at breathtaking speed. Yet, the Berlin Wall was still standing - just about.

The present republication of the Conference proceedings is introduced by a new introduction, which offers reflections - and invites feedback - on the past, the future and the 'present' of the 1986 project as seen from today's perspective. In this new introduction, the two original conference conveners, David Trubek and Christian Joerges, are joined by Peer Zumbansen. The permission to prepare the original, not updated materials for online publication with the German Law Journal was generously granted by Nomos. The editorial responsibility for getting the issue into shape lay in the able hands of the GLJ Student Editorial Board at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto and to all of these hardworking students go our sincerest thanks. We are also grateful to our authors, who stood by to answer all arising questions in the process of preparing this Symposium Issue.

We trust you will find this grand issue a good excuse to delve back into some of these truly intriguing essays, their legal imaginations, socio-political concerns and comparative insights. The full table of contents of the issue can be found here:

As always: Happy Reading!

XXV. World Congress of Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy FRANKFURT AM MAIN, 15-20 AUGUST 2001

After a first experience in Beijing (IVR XXIV – September 15-20, 2009 Beijing, China), and the successful second edition in Rotterdam (JURIX-09 – Rotterdam – November 16-18, The Netherlands) we are now announcing the third edition of AICOL (AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems) as a thematic workshop of the IVR XXV Frankfurt am Main, 15-20 August 2011.
The previous two editions, as the forthcoming ones, are conceived as a meeting point for diverse researchers (legal theorists, political scientists, linguists, logicians, and computational and cognitive scientists) eager to discuss and share their findings and proposals. In this sense, complexity and complex systems sum up the perspective chosen to describe recent developments in AI and law, legal theory, argumentation, the semantic web, and multi-agent systems.
This work has produced significant outcomes collected in the following publication, edited by Springer – LNAI:
The inspiring idea of AICOL is to further develop models of legal knowledge, concerning its organization, structure and content, in order to promote mutual understanding and communication between different legal systems and cultures. By achieving more precise models of legal concepts – from multilingual dictionaries to taxonomies and legal ontologies, namely formal models of legal conceptualization – we enhance our comprehension of legal cultures, of their commonalities and differences. Moreover, in this way we profit increasingly from computer support in managing legal knowledge, drawing on convergences and bridging differences for deeper understanding.
