Prof. dr. Léon Buskens, together with a team of international colleagues, has been granted a HERA Joint Research Programme Grant for a research project entitled "Understanding Sharia: Past Perfect/Imperfect Present".

Professor Léon Buskens will work on this project together with Professor Robert Gleave (project leader, University of Exeter), Professor Irene Schneider (Georg-August-University Göttingen) and Professor Knut Vikør (University of Bergen).
HERA – Humanities in the European Research Area – is a partnership between 24 Humanities Research Councils across Europe and the European Commission, with the objective of firmly establishing the humanities in the European Research Area and in the European Commission Framework Programmes.
