Chapter Summary

Arab world's engagement with international law and adjudication in three ways. First, the chapter provides a narrative overview and commentary about the emergence of Arab statehood. Second, it intrigues with the interplay between the Arab and European world/s for understanding the rise not only of the state, but also, international law and membership in international society. Third, the chapter considers the development of Islamic international law as a practice and as a field of recent scholarship within the discipline of public international law. It traces the concept of Arab statehood from the era of the Prophet to the present, but it does not pretend to offer a definitive account of Islamic legal history. Perhaps the biggest challenge faced in studying the history of international Islamic law is the tension between theory and practice.

Keywords: adjudication; Arab world; European world; Islamic International Law
