With armed conflicts taking place in so many parts of the Muslim world, the Islamic law of war is as indispensable as ever for the protection of civilians and others. Over the centuries, classical Muslim jurists have provided impressive legal literature, which, just as international humanitarian law (IHL), brings humanity in war. Emphasizing the universality of IHL’s principles, which transcend legal traditions, civilizations, and cultures, is absolutely essential for improving respect and protection for victims of armed conflict in the Muslim world. In this episode of the podcast, we have Dr. Ahmed Al-Dawoody, the Legal Adviser for Islamic Law and Jurisprudence at the ICRC. We speak about the intersection of international humanitarian law and Islamic law on operational impacts, including the management of the dead and the protection of children. Hosted by Niki Clark.
