Customary Justice INPROL

This practitioners guide from the International Network to Promote the Rule of Law (INPROL) by Tim Luccaro provides an introduction to customary justice. The paper provides a starting point for legal practitioners interested in the topic of customary justice as an area of the law. 

After a brief definition of customary law and of the objectives and plan of the guide, the paper provides a conceptual overview of customary justice and related concepts, and a brief discussion of the broader theoretical framework of legal pluralism. The guide then details the beneficial attributes associated with customary justice practices around the world, before discussing common criticism and shortcomings. Models of state and practitioner engagement with customary justice are then provided before a conclusion and recommendations.
