This volume of Annotated Legal Documents on Islam in Europe covers Greece and consists of an annotated collection of legal documents affecting the status of Islam and Muslims. The legal texts are published in the original Greek language while the annotations and supporting material are in English. By legal documents are meant the texts of legislation, including relevant secondary legislation, as well as significant court decisions. Each legal text is preceded by an introduction describing the historical, political and legal circumstances of its adoption, plus a short paragraph summarising its content. The focus of the collection is on the religious dimensions of being Muslim in Europe, i.e. on individuals' access to practise their religious obligations and on the ability to organise and manifest their religious life.

  • Annex: Text of an Anti-Immigrant Manifesto, Athens.
"Xenophobic violence has reached alarming proportions in Greece, particularly in the capital city of Athens. Vigilante groups of up to twenty people, often with their faces hidden and sometimes armed with clubs or beer bottles, attack migrants and asylum seekers regularly. These attacks usually take place at night on or near particular town squares. Victims have been dragged off buses, beaten, stabbed, and scarred for life. Hate on the Streets, based on dozens of interviews with victims, government officials, police and others, shows that Greek authorities have been shamefully slow in acknowledging the extent of xenophobic violence and taking concerted steps to arrest this disturbing trend. The police fail to take preventive action or respond adequately to reports of attacks, have discouraged victims from filing official complaints and threatened undocumented migrants with detention if they persist in seeking justice. Perpetrators are rarely arrested or prosecuted; to date no one has been convicted of racially-aggravated assault under a 2008 criminal law provision. The economic crisis and migratory pressure are no excuse for the Greek government's failure to counter xenophobic violence. Human Rights Watch calls on the Greek government to repudiate xenophobic violence, and take immediate steps to ensure vigorous law enforcement action to prevent and punish these hate crimes. Criminal law reform, specialized training, and better recording of hate crimes are urgently needed. The EU should support these efforts."--P. [4] of cover.

  • Considering community property : the Vakf
  • The position of the Moufti and the application of Sharia
  • Language and educational rights
  • Conclusion: Muslims between citizenship and community.
The legal and political habitus of Greece's Muslim population is discussed in a fascinating interdisciplinary historical overview of both indigenous minority and immigrant communities providing insights into the evolution and current state of minority and migration law. The book also speaks in a piercing fashion to the scholarly debate on communitarianism and liberalism, as Greece's sui generis legal tradition and embrace of community rights often runs contrary to the country's own liberal legal order and international human rights standards. How notions of ethnicity and citizenship have been challenged by recent Muslim immigration is further explored. The reader is therefore treated to a comprehensive analysis of minority rights pertaining to 'Old' and 'New' Islam in Greece within the European context.

Now in its third edition, "Introduction to Greek Law" remains the sole comprehensive summary of Greek law in a language other than Greek. In twenty insightful chapters, written by some of the best authorities on Greek law in Greece and in the United States, this book provides both analysis and commentary on the various aspects of theory and practice in contemporary Greek law, concentrating on comparative law aspects and on differences with corresponding concepts in the Anglo-American system and in other European systems. The third edition covers all these areas of substantive law and legal practice and more: the Greek Constitution and its relation to international law and the European Union; structure and distribution of state powers; effect of EC directives; regulatory authorities and administrative action; judicial organization; intellectual property; corporations and partnerships; labor relations; arbitration; commercial and maritime law; local government; legal persons; contracts and torts; marriage, divorce, and filiation; succession; bankruptcy; choice of law and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments; taxation; investment incentives; and, criminal law and procedure. Of special value is the attention to recent revisions of civil, commercial and procedural laws, particularly in the fields of conflict of laws, procedure, property, obligations, succession, and family law. Bibliographies accompany each chapter, and useful appendices include comprehensive lists of statutes, cases, and international conventions. "Introduction to Greek Law" has been well-received internationally in its earlier editions, and the third edition, with its thorough updates, is sure to be equally welcomed by practitioners and academics alike.
