This volume offers a critical analysis and illustration of the challenges and promises of ’stateless’ law thought, pedagogy and approaches to governance - that is, understanding and conceptualizing law in a post-national condition. From common, civil and international law perspectives, the collection focuses on the definition and role of law as an academic discipline, and hybridity in the practice and production of law. With contributions by a diverse and international group of scholars, the collection includes fourteen chapters written in English and three in French. Confronting the ’transnational challenge’ posed to the traditional theoretical and institutional structures that unde...

Law and Religious Pluralism in Canada

  • Publisher: UBC Press

Law and Religious Pluralism in Canada seeks to elucidate the complex and often uneasy relationship between law and religion in democracies committed both to equal citizenship and religious pluralism. Leading socio-legal scholars consider the role of religious values in public decision making, government support for religious practices, and the restriction and accommodation by government of minority religious practices. They examine such current issues as the legal recognition of sharia arbitration, the re-definition of civil marriage, and the accommodation of religious practice in the public sphere.

Lubavitchers as Citizens

Lubavitchers make an excellent test case, she explains, because they are informed, politically active, and democratic on the one hand, yet embrace nonliberal values on the other. Unlike the Amish or the Hutterites, they do not rely on rural isolation for group survival but function remarkably well in secular, urban settings. They embrace rather than withdraw from political life. Although they do not use the state to promote their worldview to a wider audience, their entry into the public realm often generates hostility and fear.

Hijab et Kirpan

La décision récente de la Cour suprême du Canada dans l'affaire Multani sur le port du kirpan par un enfant sikh dans une école publique du Québec nous offre l'occasion de réfléchir à la situation de l'enfant religieux et croyant dans notre société. Les enfants qui portent kirpan ou encore hijab représentent une vision de la mixité culturelle selon laquelle ils gardent leur croyance tout en s'investissant dans tous les aspects de l'éducation publique. Loin d'être de simples récepteurs passifs des décisions de l'État, les enfants participent activement à la définition des positions constitutionnelles et éducationnelles qui les encadrent. Enfants, parents, enseignants, administrateurs et juges doivent débattre dans les classes et les cours de récréation de la signification à donner à l'hybridité, la mixité, le multiculturalisme dans l'État libéral contemporain.

Storied Communities

  • Publisher: UBC Press

Political communities are defined, and often contested, through stories. Scholars have long recognized that two foundational sets of stories � narratives of contact and narratives of arrival � helped to define settler societies. Storied Communities disrupts the assumption that Indigenous and immigrant identities fall into two separate streams of analysis. The authors juxtapose narratives of contact and narratives of arrival as they explore key themes such as narrative form, the nature of storytelling in the political realm, and the institutional and theoretical implications of foundation narratives. By doing so, they open up new ways to imagine, sustain, and transform political communities.

Emerging Issues in Tort Law

  • Categories: Law

In this book, articles by leading tort scholars from Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Israel, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States deal with important theoretical and practical issues that are emerging in the law of torts. The articles analyse recent leading developments in areas such as economic negligence, causation, vicarious liability, non-delegable duty, breach of statutory duty, intentional torts, damages, and tort law in the family. They provide a foretaste of the issues that will face tort law in the near future and offer critical viewpoints that should not go unheeded. With its rich breadth of contributors and topics, Emerging Issues in Tort Law will be highly useful to lawyers, judges and academics across the common law world.
