EViR Blog

Welcome to our blog!

The EviR Blog is an important communication channel for the Käte Hamburger Kolleg “Legal Unity and Pluralism”. Here we publish articles that deal with the dynamic tension between unity and pluralism in law – from a historical, jurisprudential, anthropological or literary analytical perspective. There are no disciplinary, geographical or temporal boundaries.

Most of the contributions come from fellows and research associates at the centre. They formulate theses and open questions, present sources and thus provide insights into their research process. Some contributions place current developments in their historical context. In addition, we occasionally publish interviews with the fellows about their research projects.

The Plurality of Criminal Justice

World days for justice come in many different shades. On the occasion of the World Day for International Justice (July 17), Sebastian S. Spitra has looked at the new plurality of criminal justice under international law.

An exceptional Exception

Eyal Katvan is currently a fellow at the EViR Kolleg, where he is investigating family litigation in communal-informal tribunals in Mandatory Palestine (1920-1948). In this interview, he provides insight into his research project and describes how he experiences the digital fellowship.

We welcome the first Fellows

On 1 June 2021, the new Käte Hamburger Kolleg “Legal Unity and Pluralism” (EViR) in Münster started its work. In the years to come, we will examine the issue of legal pluralism in various societies from antiquity to the present from different perspectives.
