The Colour of the Earth: Indigenous women ‘before the law’

  • Law


Marisa Belausteguigoitia analyses the relation between the notions of place and justice which offers specific scenarios where we may appreciate the complexities of the meaning of place when related to the administration of justice within different and sometimes contradictory systems of jurisprudence inside a nation. She focuses on the collision of national, international and regional conceptions of law regimes administrated in a place: México's southern border, the state of Chiapas. This journey makes visible the meaning of justice in a place that rubs with the notions of modernity and cultural rights. Development (2002) 45, 47–53. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110317
