9781107014664: Law against the State: Ethnographic Forays into Law's Transformations (Cambridge Studies in Law and Society)

A collection of rich, empirically grounded case studies which investigates the conditions and consequences of 'juridification' - the use of law by ordinary individuals as a form of protest against 'the state'. Starting from the actual practices of claimants, the case studies included address the translation and interpretation of legal norms into local concepts, actions and practices in a way that highlights the social and cultural dynamism and multivocality of communities in their interaction with the law and legal norms. In doing so, we challenge the image of homogeneous and primordially norm-bound cultures that has been (unintentionally) perpetuated by some of the more widely accepted treatments of law and culture. This volume highlights the heterogeneous geography of law and the ways boundaries between different legal bodies are transcended in the struggles for rights. Contributions include case studies from South Africa, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Turkey, India and Russia.

Book Description:

A collection of rich ethnographically grounded case studies which examine how ordinary people across the globe use the law as a form of protest against 'the state'. This process transforms both the law and the people using it and demonstrates that law's enabling and constraining potentials interact in unexpected ways.

Julia Eckert is Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Bern and head of the research group 'Law against the State' at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Halle/Saale, Germany. Her research interests are in legal anthropology, the anthropology of the modern state, social movements, the anthropology of crime and punishment and changing notions of responsibility and justice.
