Reihe The Journal of Legal Pluralism and Unofficial Law


In this number Hubert Treiber calls for a reconsideration of the work of a
number of writers (Heinrich Popitz, Theodor Geiger, Christian Sigrist and
above all Max Weber) who have received particularly critical attention from
adherents of legal pluralism, arguing for further discussion of the concept of
law developed by Franz von Benda-Beckmann. Sangeeta Sharmin addresses the
dynamic nature of interactions among plural legal systems, employing theories
of legal pluralism to identify sources of legal plurality and to understand
how these interact in Malaysia. Benjamin Rubbers and Emilie Gallez consider
why in the Democratic Republic of Congo, given the general deterioration of
administrative structures, people continue to apply to the courts for redress.

Melanie G. Wiber, the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Legal Pluralism and
Unofficial Law, is Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the
Department of Anthropology at the University of New Brunswick, Canada.
