 Emilia Justyna Powell is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame. She specializes in the nexus between Islamic law (sharia) and international law. She is dedicated to the scientific examination of areas where Islamic law and international law are commensurable. As a social scientist, Powell is interested in investigating the variance in Islamic countries’ attitudes towards international law and international courts. Powell is especially curious about the ways in which sharia’s presence in these countries’ governance affects their preferences toward international settlement venues. Powell studies international law, international courts, and other venues for peaceful resolution of disputes. Born in Toruń, Poland, she received her legal education at the University of Nicholas Copernicus (Poland), Jean Monnet Center for European Studies, and the University of Cambridge. Her most prominent publications include a book published in Cambridge University Press (2011) entitled Domestic Law Goes Global: Legal Traditions and International Courts (with Sara McLaughlin Mitchell), and several articles in top political science academic journals such as International Organization, Journal of Politics, International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Peace Research, Journal of Conflict Resolution. Powell's new book project entitled Islamic Law States and International Law: Peaceful Settlement of Disputes provides a comprehensive examination of differences and similarities between sharia and the classical international law, especially in the context of dispute settlement. She demonstrates that substantive and procedural similarities between these two legal systems surpass their differences to bring about a more peaceful world. Professor
