Intersections between the Law, Religion and Human Rights Project
Literature Review by Schofield King Lawyers
This literature review, completed by Associate Professor Toni Schofield of Schofield King Lawyers, explores the intersections between the law, religion and human rights. It focuses on peer-reviewed research that discusses alternative dispute resolution in religious communities and education and training related to alternative dispute resolution and family law issues in Australia.
The review finds that “research required to identify and analyse the patterns and dynamics of alternative dispute resolution related to family law matters in Islamic communities in Australia does not yet exist”, concluding that comprehensive and systematic Australian research is required to further investigate these issues.
