CANCELED, REL, Muslim marriage laws, customs and rituals as seen from a Danish perspective


The course will be divided into two parts: Theoretical and Practical.

The theoretical part will provide firstly, an introductory knowledge of Muslim marriage laws, rituals and customs (for example what is marriage in Islam, age and consent, witnesses, prohibited relations to marriage and many more aspects) . Participants will get to know various perspectives and interpretations generally separated into conservative and liberal practices. The second part will provide basic knowledge about research methodology and how empirical investigation should be conducted.

The practical part of the course will be collection of empirical data from refugees with Muslim backgrounds who have arrived to Denmark within last five years. The participant’s own personal and social networks have to be used to find appropriate interviewees.

The course requires creative thinking, as interviewing refugees from a variety of ethnic backgrounds is a crucial part of the course; some linguistic capabilities will be an advantage, but not a prerequisite for participating in the course.
