Negotiating State and Non-State Law : The Challenge of Global and Local Legal Pluralism, Hardback Book

Negotiating State and Non-State Law : The Challenge of Global and Local Legal Pluralism Hardback

Edited by Michael A. Helfand

Part of the ASIL Studies in International Legal Theory series

Description

Non-state law is playing an increasing role in both public and private ordering.

Numerous organizations have emerged alongside the nation-state, each purporting to provide their members with rules and norms to govern their conduct and organize their affairs.

The nation-state increasingly finds itself sandwiched, between two broad and contrasting categories of non-state law.

The first - law above the state - captures legal systems that function across the territorial borders of nation-states.

The second category - law below the state - includes forms of local customary, religious, and indigenous law.

As these forms of non-state law persist and proliferate alongside the nation-state, the relationship between state and non-state law becomes more complex, multifaceted, and tense.

This volume addresses this relationship considering whether and to what extent state and non-state law can coexist and how each form of law seeks to influence as well as transform the other.
