Multicultural Interlegality


ISBN13: 9783825898991
Published: September 2008
Publisher: Lit Verlag
Country of Publication: Germany
Format: Paperback
Price: £25.00



"Multicultural interlegality": This neologism is used primarily to refer to the process whereby local law yields to the superior force of a dominant national system and adopts many features of the majority law. It includes also a "reverse interlegality" where local legal sensibilities and practices in some respects affect the dominant law. T. Acton analyses the legal position of the Roma/Gypsies/Travellers under state law in the UK and contextualizes this in terms of a general discussion of how Gypsy law interacts with state law among different groups of Gypsies in various parts of the world. T. Svensson examines measures for strengthening the autonomy of the Sámi in Norway. C. Proulx gives a Canadian example of reverse interlegality by showing how local Aboriginal justice affects non-Aboriginal national justice in the formal Canadian justice system through the channels of new institutions.
