Emilia Powell’s ambitious study of Islamic and international law successfully examines how receptive Islamic law states (ILS) are to international law's tools and forums for the peaceful resolution of disputes. This question is important for institutions such as the International Court of Justice (ICJ), specifically created to adjudicate international disputes across legal systems and cultures. Understanding receptivity can help us assess a state’s preferences in choosing among alternative forums for dispute resolution, ranging from the ICJ to ad hoc arbitration.
