To this end, the main training objective consists in the total understanding of the Islamic values and the values of Sharia Law, whose knowledge is necessary in order to smoothly interface a different culture. the following objectives will be achieved through a targeted thematic excursus:
- Necessary knowledge as a starting point for further in-depth studies balanced on specific needs;
- Knowledge of the main legal, communicative and social categories of the Islamic Sharia;
- Awareness in order to address topical issues through an evolved perspective;
- Critical analysis / problem solving skills.
This will allow participants to address topical issues from a conscious perspective and to critically analyze any kind of conflicts (ideological, social, political, national and / or international). Thanks to the skills acquired, the student will be facilitated to operate in international (and / or non-international) Islamic and / or predominantly Muslim contexts.
