A book review from a very interesting volume on customary justice and the rule of law written by me was published last year in Journal of Legal Pluralism and Unofficial Law. Vol. 64/2011. You can read it here.
The book consists of case studies that go beyond traditional legal analysis to include historical perspective as well as the complexities of actors and institutions in Mozambique, Guatemala, East Timor, Afghanistan, Liberia and Sudan.
It is worth reading for any scholars working in the field of access to justice and conflict studies.
