A special issue of Religions (ISSN 2077-1444).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 July 2018)
Prof. Sohail H. Hashmi
In recent decades, Islamic ethics has expanded considerably as a field, as Muslims confront a host of new issues in, for example, medical ethics, environmental ethics, and human rights. Muslim ethical debates parallel those in other religious and philosophical traditions and are often driven or at least inspired by ethical debates in other parts of our ever-shrinking world. The focus of this special issue is on the connections between Muslim and non-Muslim ethical debates on key international concerns. How are Muslim ethical debates being influenced by external discourses? How is Islamic ethics contributing to these international discourses?
The issue will include at least two papers on each of the following topics, for a total of ten papers.
A. Medical ethics
B. Animal rights
C. Human rights (including migration and distributive justice)
D. Military ethics
E. Environmental ethics
Papers accepted for publication will cohere by following a common structure, outlined below. Each author will be asked to build their essay around a particularly important or decisive recent case. They will use the case study to illuminate the interconnections and mutual influences of Muslim and international discourses.
A. Background: ethical issues in Muslim and non-Muslim discourses pertinent to topic
B. Case study: facts
C. Case study: ethical analysis
D. Conclusion: what does case study show about influence of international discourses on Muslim debates and Muslim debates on international discourses?
