Abstract

French Abstract: Loin des dichotomies contemporaines et du discours en termes de conflits de valeurs, l'ouvrage d'Abdullah Saeed prône une approche harmonisatrice qui concilie traditions islamiques et exigences des droits fondamentaux. Ce compte-rendu suggère que cette approche pourrait inspirer les relations entre droit international privé et droits fondamentaux.


English Abstract: This review analyses the "harmonising interpretation techniques" susceptible to reconcile Islamic traditions and Human Rights reasoning. It argues that normative pluralism is a useful source for transcending dichotomies and that a similar approach could help appease current tensions between human rights requirements and private international law reasoning.
