All issues try to understand how to do this transformation. This transformation is a need for Muslims as well as non-Muslims all around the world. In today's world, misunderstanding and misinformation about Islam and Muslims have caused many conflictual environments to emerge. In order to end this conflictual environment in social and political life, firstly we need sincerely to reveal how Islam establishes a socio-political system. JISPOL has the aim to contribute to this revealing attempt with academic research articles, policy papers, and book reviews in eight declared disciplines. The articles can be both Islam-oriented and discipline-oriented. In the first issue, there are two discipline-oriented research articles and a policy paper. Additionally, the issue includes one Islam-oriented research article and one policy paper.
