Sharia State and Social Norms in France and Indonesia by John R Bowen pdf free download. I will consider here ongoing debates in two countries rarely compared, France and Indonesia, about what place Islamic norms concerning marriage and divorce ought to have, if any, in a unitary legal system. I view these debates not only as a case for comparative Islamic studies, but as part of something broader, an
interlocking set of conversations across nations and world-areas about the place of diverse social norms in a political community.

My interest in these conversations is in the ways in which institutional and conceptual structures shape public deliberations. Citizenship is again in the news, with much of the current attention being focused on how rights attached to persons transcend the boundaries of sovereign states (Hanagan and Tilly 1999; Soysal 1994). Although nation-states organize the ways in which human rights, citizenship, marriage, or local elections are recognized, they have to answer to transnational ideas on each of these topics. Some of these ideas are written down in conventions and in the decisions of transnational courts; others are social norms on which national laws increasingly converge.

In Europe, ideas about gender parity on electoral lists, the rights of “natural” children, and the balance of “soil” and “blood” in citizenship laws, are, in 2001, on a rapidly lengthening list of topics where one sees such a convergence, in part because of decisions taken by European institutions, in part because national interest groups can call on European norms to help make their cases for reform. Such convergences are not limited to Europe; legal aid groups in Indonesia increasingly cite human rights conventions, as well as European and North American laws, in support of legal changes concerning women’s rights.
