Abstract [en]

Sweden, as well as many of the other member states of the European Union, hastransformed into multicultural societies. In these increasingly culturally differentiatedsocieties demands are raised by immigrant groups for the recognition of theircultural identity and uniqueness. Minority customs may in some cases conflict withfundamental values in the state law. In this article the author is elaborating on theSwedish private international law rules and the multicultural dilemma in relationto the Islamic law of inheritance, which is often considered to belong to those areasof the Islamic law that express principles that are incompatible with the core valuesof Swedish law.
