journal contributionposted on 2023-06-09, 11:54 authored by Helen DancerHelen Dancer
This book comes at a time of signi?cant policy interest amongst international organisations in legal pluralism and its contribution to development debates. Published a year after the International Development Law Organization’s own series of books on customary justice and legal empowerment (Harper 2011a, 2011b; Ubink and McInerney 2011), this book is the product of a gathering of scholars and practitioners instigated by members of the World Bank’s Justice for the Poor Program on the topic of legal pluralism. The value and uniqueness of the book lies in its bringing together a number of leading scholars and experienced practitioners, highlighting the contemporary relevance of long-standing theoretical debates within legal pluralism to development policy – and vice versa.
