About this item

As part of a broad comparative research project studying the anthropology of law in Muslim contexts, social anthropologists look at Sudan from the perspectives of land issues: dynamics of appropriation and legal framework, and statutory and non-statutory courts: principles and practices for dispute settlement. Among their topics are claiming tribal land rights in a global context: institutional bricolage and definitions of 'urf among pastoralists in Khartoum State, access to land for non-Muslims in Greater Khartoum: disclosing divergent minority models in international and Sudanese laws. communal customary land rights in Sudan: the need for a comprehensive reform of statutory land laws, dynamics of dispute management in South Gedaref State in eastern Sudan: an anthropological approach, and customary laws and courts in the context of Sudan's legal pluralism: whether people are marginalized or empowered under English common law and Islamic law.
