    Die Revitalisierung in Tradition im Recht: Rückfall in die Vergangenheit oder zeitgemässe Entwicklung?
    Benda-Beckmann, F. von; Benda-Beckmann, K. von; Turner, B. - \ 2005
    Juridkum 2005 (2005)4. - p. 197 - 201.
    One of the major research themes of the project group is the changes in plural legal constellations characterised by some form of co-existence between state law, customary law and religious law under conditions of globalisation. One of the unexpected and striking developments is what looks like a revitalisation of tradition in customary and religious law. Although the increased proliferation of interand transnational law as well as state legislation would lead one to expect a further weakening or disappearance of non-state legal forms, the contrary seems to be true. Research carried out in West Sumatra, Indonesia, the Souss in Southern Morocco, Bombay (India) and Ladakh and Amdo (Tibetan India and China) suggests that such revitalisation cannot be simply explained as a nostalgic turning back to the past due to the failure of nation states or the political, economic and cultural impacts of globalisation. Research shows that these processes are often very future oriented. Local, national and transnational actors instrumentalise the past for shaping social, economic and political organisation.
    Pak Dusa's law: Thoughts on law, legal knowledge and power
    Benda-Beckmann, F. von - \ 2005
    Journal of Transdisciplinary Environmental Studies 4 (2005)2. - ISSN 1602-2297
    This paper examines the ways in which law, legal knowledge and power become involved in social interaction. Any such interaction takes place within and is constrained and enabled by actual and imagined "power fields", constituted by configurations of relations of autonomy and dependence. Legally constructed positions of legitimate power (in general rules or concrete decisions) can be important resources which can be drawn upon in interaction. This is illustrated with the experiences of Pak Dusa, a villager on the island of Ambon in Eastern Indonesia. The paper argues that the main difference between constructions of law in legal decisions made in courts and by other actors outside courts does not lie so much in the actors' knowledge of the law but more in the courts' legally constituted position to exercise power. However, as the experiences of Pak Dusa show, court decisions enter a wider power field in which they may loose their legally constructed significance, while his own, unauthorized law carried the day
