"This is an excellent example of the kind of new comparative law theory and application appearing in many recent texts...where the definition of legal culture is expanded, and the exciting and creative prospects for cross-fertilization are apparent. This book should be regarded as a necessary addition to these new voices." International Journal of Legal Information
"Shachar's book addresses an important problem and is full of rich insights." American Political Science Review
Can the state respect cultural differences while protecting the rights of vulnerable group members, in particular women? Shachar argues that it is both theoretically needed and institutionally feasible. Rejecting prevalent solutions to this "paradox of multicultural vulnerability", Multicultural Jurisdictions argues for enhancing minorities' autonomy, while providing viable legal-institutional solutions to intra-group rights violation. This new "joint governance" approach reduces the injustice between minority groups and society, while enhancing justice within them. This book will interest students of political and social theory, law, religion, institutional design, and cultural and gender studies.
