The Ruse of Law

The Ruse of Law

Legal Equality and the Problem of Citizenship in a Multireligious Sudan

(p.200) Chapter Ten The Ruse of Law
After Secular Law

Noah Salomon

Stanford University Press

This chapter on “postconflict” Sudan describes the tensions that emerge within the law from the competing demands for equal citizenship and multiculturalism in which law is applied, or not applied, on the basis of the religious or cultural identity of the defendant. The conventional depoliticization of discourse on the rule of law has allowed it to be adopted by those who call into question the very foundation of the rule of law. Barring the unlikely elimination of shari'a in northern Sudan, this chapter asks whether social stability must now be gauged through the negotiation of a system of radical legal pluralism.

Keywords:   equal citizenship, religious identity, multiculturalism, northern Sudan, shari'a, radical legal pluralism
