Aims of the Journal:

Journal of Islamic State Practices in International Law (JISPIL) is a peer-reviewed Journal published by electronicpublications.org. The aim of this Journal is to focus on issues concerning and involving Islamic States from the perspective of International Law. In this context all States members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (formerly the Organisation of Islamic Conference) are considered as being ‘Islamic’ States. In addition to the practices of individual Islamic States, the Journal focuses on multilateral co-operation involving Islamic States, in particular the Organisation of Islamic Conference. The Journal also covers legal issues which may be of general interest to the Islamic world; these issues may have arisen in ‘non-Islamic’ States or those States which are not members of the Organisation of Islamic Conference. The Journal presents coverage of important international legal issues relevant to the Islamic world, including treaty arrangements. It also reports on national and international cases involving Islamic States and multilateral organisations.
