Other Phases of Legal Pluralism in the Contemporary World
Abstract:Since the discovery of the dual structure of state law and minor law in non-Western countries, the scope of the inquiry into legal pluralism has been expanding gradually. This article attempts to prompt this inquiry by identifying hitherto neglected phases of legal pluralism working in the contemporary world. After discussing various kinds of legal pluralism, other types of legal pluralism are suggested for verification by interested scholars, such as legal pluralism in conflict, legal pluralism in subjectivity, a conceptual scheme and an operational definition of legal pluralism.
