IKWRO, a charity dedicated to helping women of Middle Eastern origin escape domestic/’honour-based violence, is conducting an survey into the experiences of Muslim women who use the courts to settle family disputes. Sunny has written on Sharia courts in the past, and the issues surrounding them.
It is for staff in organisations which have advised women who have used or considered using Muslim Arbitration Tribunals or Islamic Sharia Councils to resolve family disputes.
The aim of the survey is twofold, as it seeks to discover:
1. The experiences of women using Muslim Arbitration Tribunals and Islamic Sharia Councils to resolve family disputes.
2. The level of experience and knowledge about Muslim Arbitration Tribunals and Islamic Sharia Councils among the women’s sector, and the sector’s information needs.
Relevant individuals can take the survey here.
