In most post-conflict states, a strong level of legal pluralism is
the norm, particularly in regions of Africa and Asia where between
eighty and ninety per cent of disputes are resolved through
non-state legal mechanisms. The international community, in
particular the United Nations, persistently drives the
re-establishment of the rule of law in war-torn areas where,
traditionally, customary law is prevalent. Laura Grenfell traces
the international community's evolving understanding of the rule of
law in such regions and explores the implications of strong legal
pluralism for the rule-of-law enterprise. Using the comparative
examples of two unique case studies, South Africa and Timor-Leste,
Promoting the Rule of Law in Post-Conflict States provides insight
into the relationship between the rule of law and legal pluralism.
Alongside these studies, the book offers a comprehensive
introduction to the conceptual framework of the rule of law in the
context of approaches taken by the international community.
