Indonesian and German Views on the Islamic Legal Discourse on Gender and Civil Rights addresses current issues and discourses on gender equality and civil rights in Indonesia and Germany. Contributions to this volume delve into the legal status of Muslim women by reference to the rights to freedom from discrimination and of Muslim mirity groups facing the issue of criminalization of apostasy.

Employing manifold perspectives and approaches, including theology, social sciences, discourse studies, and science of law, it sets out to contribute to our understanding of Islamic gender discourse and relevant legal issues among Muslims across the world.
