Van big five naar high five?

Plaats en invloed van de rechtssociologische hoogleraren aan de Nederlandse juridische faculteiten

Tijdschrift Recht der Werkelijkheid, Aflevering 2 2020
Trefwoorden Rechtssociologie, Juridische opleidingen, Eén inleiding voor studenten, Samenwerking tussen hoogleraren, Sociaal wetenschappelijk onderzoek
Auteurs Prof. Mr Nick Huls
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In From big five to high five the author analyzes the developments of sociology of law at the law faculties in the Netherlands since the 1970ies until today. Focusing on the professors (‘chairs’) he argues that after a strong start with five prominent scholars the discipline is now placed in the periphery of the law curriculum. Sociology of law is ‘intellectually strong, but institutionally weak’.
    The author encourages the present generation professors (‘chairs’) to cooperate more. He claims that writing one modern Dutch Introduction to Sociology of law is crucial to win the hearts and minds of the law students. Furthermore, he suggests that collaborative research projects contributes to the visibility of sociology of law in policy arenas and public debates.

Opinio juris as epistème: A constructivist approach to the use of contested concepts in legal doctrine

Tijdschrift Recht der Werkelijkheid, Aflevering 3 2016
Trefwoorden Opinio juris, Interpretive concepts, Customary law, Constructivism, Pierre Bourdieu, Peter Berger & Thomas Luckmann
Auteurs Associate Professor Olaf Tans
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Seeing that the role of opinio juris in the identification of customary international law is essentially contested, this contribution seeks to explain how this concept plays a fruitful role in legal doctrine despite of, or perhaps even due to, this essential contestedness. To that effect the paper adopts a constructivist perspective, primarily drawing from Bourdieu’s theory of practice and Berger & Luckmann’s ideas about institutionalization. In this perspective, contested concepts such as opinio juris are conceived of as multifaceted tools of knowledge production in the hands of members of epistemic communities.

Autonomy of law in Indonesia

Tijdschrift Recht der Werkelijkheid, Aflevering 3 2016
Trefwoorden Rule of law, Indonesia, Socio-legal studies, Legal scholarhip, Judiciary
Auteurs Professor Adriaan Bedner
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This article seeks to answer how useful the theoretical approaches developed in Europe and the United States are for explaining or understanding the autonomy of law in Indonesia – a nation that is on the verge of becoming a lower-middle-income country and whose legal system presents many of the features found in other developing countries’ legal systems. The article first sketches three lines of theoretical thought that have dominated the inquiry into autonomy of law in (Western) sociology and then assesses to what extent they are represented in the socio-legal studies of Indonesian law. The conclusion is that although socio-legal scholars studying developing countries need supplementary concepts and theories, they can use the Western ones as their point of departure in understanding the functioning of law in a setting that is very different from the one in which these theories were developed.


Professor Adriaan Bedner

Een verslag van de discussie over rechtssociologisch onderwijs in Nederland

Tijdschrift Recht der Werkelijkheid, Aflevering 2 2014
Trefwoorden Sociology of law, Socio-legal education, Educational practices
Auteurs Reyer Baas
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    When Dutch-speaking sociologists of law meet, actual research is heavily discussed. Education, unfortunately, is rarely a topic of discussion. In 2014 sociologists of law gathered to exchange experiences in and ideas on education. This article gives an account of the discussion.
    The sociologists of law proved to be united on a number of fundamental questions. They concluded that it is useful to have students do research and to connect education in sociology of law with legal courses. This helps in realizing the ultimate goal: to have students achieve a greater understanding of the law by means of socio-legal insights. However, opinions diverged on the question of whether present educational practices in sociology of law are sufficiently renewing and attractive to students. Keep on reading to find out about other educational perspectives, challenges and solutions.

Mediatie in Guatemala

Een bijdrage aan een vreedzame samenleving?

Tijdschrift Recht der Werkelijkheid, Aflevering 01 2008
Auteurs Laure d'Hondt
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Mediation is on the rise in Guatemala. In this multicultural society that has a weak rule of law there is little trust in the state law system. Informal ways of dispute settlement are popular. NGO’s, state and semi-state invest in different forms of mediation as an alternative for the legal procedure. The state links mediation to courts; NGO’s and semi-state focus on local community leaders as mediators. Characteristic of mediation is the liberty of the conflicting parties to find a solution within their own conditions, without the limits, and protection, of a legal procedure. This provides opportunities but also creates dangers. The article shows the possibilities of mediation in a society where the state isn’t a good dispute settler. It also demonstrates the dangers of mediation; consequence of the liberty is that there is not much protection of the weaker party. As the state doesn’t offer an alternative mediation becomes vulnerable to abuse of power.
