Legal Pluralism
Legal pluralism covers situations where more than one legal culture are present. In Burma/Myanmar there is the Anglo-Burmese statutory law (including special legislation for non-Buddhist communities), Burmese and non-Burmese customary law, legal codes drafted by various non-state actors as well as the gradual entry of international human rights and other standards...In our view, legal pluralism has an important place in the peace process.
