The relationship between Islamic law as living law with state/official law in China both in the historical and contemporary context

I obtained a degree of Master in law (jurisprudence) at Xinjiang University, P.R. China, with a thesis on “The Deconstruction of the Post-modern Theory to Gendered Law: from the perspective of the development of the concept of gender in feminist jurisprudence”, which investigated the historical development of the relationship between gender and law since the emergence of feminist jurisprudence and then further, by challenging the male patriarchy coherent to rationalism, see how the concept of gender from a post-modern perspective could shed light on the justice and equal treatment of law. I got my second MA in Studies on European Union and Central Asia in the International System at Centre International de Formation Europeenne, Institut für Europäische Politik in Germany, with a thesis on “A Constitutional Approach of the Building of European Identity: On Habermas’ post-national collective identity building theory” which dealt with Habermas’ collective identity building theory in the politically as well as a culturally diversified EU context. I am currently doing a double-PhD with the University of Groningen and Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, focusing on the issue of the relationship between Islamic law as living law with state/official law in China both in the historical and contemporary context to see how Islam represented by its norms (Shari’a) has been interacting with Chinese state/official law and how these interactions influence and contribute to the constructing of Chinese tradition which is the precondition of future building of the rule of law and democracy in China.
