Subjects include the judges’ motivations, judicial independence, precedent, judging on collegial courts and in the hierarchy of justice and the relationship between judges and the other government actors.

This review reveals a multiplicity of perspectives on the Islamic law of war and peace. It highlights work that illustrates how the concept of Jihad is interpreted or misinterpreted, examines the rules applicable during the conduct of armed conflict and reveals the significance of peace and security within Islamic tradition. The selection provides valuable insights into the compatibility of the Islamic law of war and peace and the law of armed conflict, demonstrating how the former could minimise unnecessary human suffering during armed conflict.
