Islam does not recognise a distinction between religion and law because for Muslims both are derived from God‘s revealed message. The result is an inevitable tension between Islamic beliefs and the modern (secular) nation state that has become the subject of major global controversies and conflicts in recent decades. It also lies at the heart of the politics of Islam in Asia. This tension, and the legal, political and social controversies that result from it, are the focus of this subject, which is based on selected comparative case studies, focusing on efforts to implement legal Islamisation. Teaching is led by a scholar who has conducted extensive fieldwork across South East Asia and worked closely with Islamic legal institutions in the region. He is supported by guest lecturers from South East Asia, who will bring their own local perspectives to class discussions.
This subject examines the relationship between the modern nation state and Islam in Asia, focusing on the 240 million Muslims in Australia’s South East Asian neighbourhood.
