Law's Fragile State: Colonial, Authoritarian, and Humanitarian Legacies in Sudan lecture with Mark Fathi Massoud
October 28 2014 at 12:15 PM
Law Library, Arthur Neef, Faculty Lounge 3rd floor
Mark Fathi Massoud, Law's Fragile State: Colonial, Authoritarian, and Humanitarian Legacies in Sudan (Cambridge University Press, 2014).How do a legal order and the rule of law develop in a war-torn state? Using his field research in Sudan, the author uncovers how colonial administrators, postcolonial governments and international aid agencies have used legal tools and resources to promote stability and their own visions of the rule of law amid political violence and war in Sudan. Tracing the dramatic development of three forms of legal politics - colonial, authoritarian and humanitarian - this book contributes to a growing body of scholarship on law in authoritarian regimes and on human rights and legal empowerment programs in the Global South. Refuting the conventional wisdom of a legal vacuum in failed states, this book reveals how law matters deeply even in the most extreme cases of states still fighting for political stability.    Winner of the 2014 Herbert Jacob Book Award, Law and Society Association    Honourable Mention, 2014 C. Herman Pritchett Award, Law and Courts Section, American Political Science Association
