Professor of Law Dr. Shaheen Sardar Ali Delivers a Talk at GIK


Professor of Law Dr. Shaheen Sardar Ali Delivers a Talk at GIK Teaching and Learning Islamic Law in Contemporary Times: Some Reflections on Adopting a Contextual and Research-led Approach By Dr. Shaheen Sardar Ali April 17th, 2019   The GIK Institute has introduced a new seminar series. The seminars are meant to provide a platform to GIK students and faculty to engage in constructive dialogue with experts in fields other than those taught formally in the Institute, such as international relations, the economy, law, environment, human rights and gender studies. The first lecture of the new seminar series was led by renowned lawyer and scholar, Dr. Shaheen Sardar Ali. Dr. Ali is a Professor of Law at University of Warwick in the United Kingdom, the first female Law Professor in Pakistan and one of the 100 most influential Pakistani women. She has formerly served as a Professor of Law at the University of Oslo (Norway) and University of Peshawar, and as a Vice-Chair of the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (2008 – 2014). Dr. Ali’s talk focused on years of experience spent developing a contextual and research-led methodology to teach Islamic Law in a globalizing world. She shed light on the importance of critical engagement with history in research and the adoption of pedagogical practices that inspire students to innovate. To explain how contextual analysis affects research, she used examples of Quranic injunctions that have been interpreted differently in the Middle East, Maghreb and South Asia, simply because of differences in how they were analyzed. Laws pertaining to polygamy and divorce under Islamic Law, for instance, vary from one corner of the globe to the other, explained the lawyer. Dr. Ali urged the engineers and scientists in the audience to adopt bolder practices in teaching or research if they are to make advancements in their respective areas of study. Pointing to the well-known story of Isaac Newton and his observation of the falling apple, she encouraged taking a deeper look at how scientific theories and laws are derived, questioning even notions deemed incontestable for decades. Her lecture was followed by a question and answer session with the audience. Her opinion was sought on matters ranging from marital rights to the Islamic solution for currency devaluation. The Pro-Rector (Academics) of GIK, Prof. Dr. Jameel-Un Nabi, appreciated Dr. Ali for sharing her valuable insights with the GIK community.   ...
