Understanding Islamic Legal Culture and Migration through Ethnographic and Archival Research

Projekt: Forskning



This is an application for a five-month guest research stay (May 1-September 30, 2020) at the Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul (SRII). The choice of the host institute is motivated by the applicant’s ongoing research projects which have direct relevance for the academic focus of the host institute (SRII) on Turkey, the Middle East, and Central Asia. The overall aim of the guest research stay at SRII is to establish a mutually beneficial collaboration between the applicant and staff of the SRII in the frame of two research objectives/sub-projects): (1) Islamic Legal Culture in Post-Soviet Central Asia, and (2) Migration, Shadow Economy and Parallel Legal Orders in Istanbul. The intention is that this guest research stay will lead to knowledge transfer between the guest researcher and the host institute staff, as well as foster new academic collaboration between the sending university (Department of Sociology of Law, Lund University) and host institute (SRII) through joint research seminars, co-authored publications, and new research grant applications.
