Legal pluralism in Europe and the ordre public exception: normative and judicial perspectives - International Workshop - 16 and 17 April 2015, Trento
In so far as this foreign law corresponds to – or is largely influenced by – Islamic law (or other religious law), domestic legal systems in Europe face the problem of reviewing the compatibility of such religiously inspired foreign law with domestic (and European) fundamental rights standards, mainly by applying the public policy (ordre public) exception which prevents the administrative application or the judicial enforcement of foreign law or foreign judicial or administrative decisions that are qualified as incompatible.
The International Workshop aims at considering the current attitude shown by the judiciary in legal systems strongly influenced by Islamic law as well as in some European states, while ultimately focusing on whether a shared European ordre public exception in the field of family law is emerging in case law.
