Item description for Law and Anthropology:Natural Resource, Environment, and Legal Pluralism (International Yearbook for Legal Anthropology, Volume 9) (v. 9) by Rene Kuppe...
The Law & Anthropology Yearbook brings together a collection of studies that discuss legal problems raised by cultural differences between people and the law to which they are subject. Most of the contributions to Volume 9 were presented at the IXth International Symposium of the Commission on Folk Law and Legal Pluralism, and focus on the subject of `Natural Resources, Environment, and Legal Pluralism'. The natural resources which form the environment of rural people are subject to increasing pressures. Intensive forms of resource extraction increasingly endanger the continued availability and ecological quality of land, forest and water resources. Especially in regions inhabited by indigenous peoples, struggles over the control and social and economic function of natural resources are directly linked to conflicts over political and economic self-determination. Inevitably, the different legal systems, and the substantive and procedural possibilities they provide, become involved in struggles over political, economic and ecological values and objectives. The focus on natural resource management issues therefore is a particularly fruitful field to examine the contemporary functions of folk law in complex legal and economic systems.
