Griet Vermeesch (Editor), Manon Van der Heijden (Editor), Jaco Zuijderduijn (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Containing a wealth of extensively contextualised case studies and contributing to debates on socio-legal history, processes of state formation from below, access to justice, and legal pluralism, this book questions to what degree top-down imposed formal institutions were used and how, and to what degree, bottom-up crafted legal systems were crucial in allowing transactions to happen.
