Abstract:This book emerged from a series of papers presented at a three-day international conference held in Maputo from 28-30 April 2010, entitled 'State and non-State public safety and justice provision - the dynamics of legal pluralism in Mozambique'. A key aim of the conference was to examine how legal pluralism is practised on the ground, and what implications the constitutional recognition of legal pluralism has for the interactions between State and non-State providers of justice at the local level. Chapters: Legal pluralism, justice and human rights: reappraising law in a transnational age (Anne Griffiths); Legal pluralism and constitutional reform processes (Markus Böckenförde); Legal pluralism and plural memories: the perseverance of spirits in Mozambique (Maria Paula Meneses); Traditional authorities and legal pluralism: a comparative analysis of two case studies in Mozambique and Angola (Fernando Florêncio); Toward an ecology of justices: an urban and rural study of Mozambican plurality (Sara Araújo); Sorcery trials, cultural relativism and local hegemonies (Paulo Granjo); Negotiating order in post-war Mozambique: the role of community courts in redressing unsettled wartime conflicts (Victor Igreja); The police strategic plan and its implementation (Francisco Inácio Alar); Vigilante 'justice' and collective violence (Vitalina do Carmo Papadakis); Spirits at the police station and the district court (Carolien Jacobs); 'New' non-State actors in the plural legal landscape of Mozambique: the contested role of community policing (Helene Maria Kyed); Security and justice reform in Sierra Leone: the uneasy position of chiefs (Peter Albrecht); Cape Verdean State legal pluralism: the establishment and dissolution of the popular courts (Odair Bartolomeu Barros Lopes Varela).
