              This companion provides scholars and upper level students with a comprehensive and authoritative review of current research and thinking about legal pluralism. Leading global experts come together, each presenting a distinctive aspect of legal pluralism, resulting in a book which... offers a state of the art reference resource. The first part includes broadly theoretical perspectives on legal pluralism and addresses whether legal pluralism is a theory, methodology, a tool of analysis, a descriptive or a normative concept, or a mixture of any of these. This part also includes a specific focus on leading theorists who have made a profound contribution to understanding of the field. The second part includes chapters on distinct legal traditions e.g. Jewish law, Western law, Islamic law, Hindu law, Chinese law, etc. and demonstrates how and to what extent these legal traditions are inherently legally plural and how legal pluralism has any purchase for describing, studying or analyzing them. The third part approaches legal pluralism from various jurisdictional positions, via a series of country studies showing how legal pluralism contributes to a better understanding of the functioning of these legal orders. The authors offer a historical approach and discuss the impact of the reception of foreign laws; the role of legal education; the existence of plural court systems and plural bodies of laws. They also discuss key legal formants introduced through religion, state practices, the presence of tribal and ethnic communities and their practices, and settler colonialism.

              This book seeks to re-appreciate the concept of customary international law as a form of spontaneous societal self-organisation, and to develop the methodological consequences that ensue from this conception for the practice of its application. In pursuing this aim, the author dr...aws from three different strands of scholarship that have not yet been considered in connection with one another: First, general jurisprudential theories of customary law; second, theories of customary international law, especially as they relate to international relations scholarship; and third, methodological approaches to the interpretation of international law. This expansive, philosophical layout of the book enables the author to put the conceptual enigmas of customary international law into a broader perspective. Among the issues discussed in the book are the dichotomy of its traditional and modern forms and the respective benefits and disadvantages of inductive and deductive approaches to its ascertainment. In the course of this analysis, the author draws insights from Friedrich August Hayek's theory of law as a `spontaneous order,' an information-processing device which enables the participants of a legal system to make use of decentralized knowledge. The book argues that the major advantage of custom as a source of international law lies in the fact that it is the result of a gradual process of trial and error, rather than the product of deliberate planning. This makes it a particularly apposite source of law in a time like of seismic shifts in the distribution of power within a vastly diverse community of States, when a new global order is expected to emerge the contours of which are not yet clearly discernible. This book applies general concepts of legal philosophy to explain the continuing relevance of custom as a source of international law while at the same time inferring from this theoretical framework concrete practical and methodological consequences, the most important of w

              This book engages the limits of transitional justice and, more specifically, the interface between transitional justice and the related concept of transformative justice. Challenging and developing the work of transitional justice scholars and practitioners, the book addresses bo...th the limitations of existing mechanisms in contexts where they are currently applied, as well as the possibilities for using, or adapting, transitional justice mechanisms in contexts typically viewed as outside their usual remit. More specifically, chapters address shortcomings with regard to victim participation in transitional justice mechanisms in Cambodia; consider how the transformative justice framework might be mobilised to overcome limitations of standard approaches to transitional justice in addressing structural violence in post-conflict Colombia; and address how the concept of transformative justice could be used to address historical wrongs in post-apartheid South Africa and post-war Bosnia-Herzegovina. Further chapters explore the intersections of identity and culture with transitional and transformative justice, and put forward the case for applying a broader approach to historical truth telling than is typical in transitional justice.

              Environmental Crime and its Victims: Perspectives within Green Criminology
               

              Environmental Crime and its Victims: Perspectives within Green Criminology (Paperback)

              Edited by Spapens, Toine; Kluin, Dr Marieke

              Environmental crime is one of the most profitable and fastest growing areas of international criminal activity. These types of crime, however, do not always produce an immediate consequence, and the harm may be diffused. As such, the complexity of victimization - in terms of time..., space, impact, and who or what is victimized - is one of the reasons why governments and the enforcement community have trouble in finding suitable and effective responses. This book provides a diverse and provocative array of arguments, critiques and recommendations from leading researchers and scholars in the field of green criminology. The chapters are divided into three main sections: the first part deals with specific characteristics of some of the major types of environmental crime and its perpetrators; the second focuses explicitly on the problem of victimization in cases of environmental crime; and the third addresses the question of how to tackle this problem. Discussing these topics from the point of view of green criminological theory, sociology, law enforcement, community wellbeing, environmental activism and victimology, this book will be of great interest to all those concerned about crime and the environment.
