oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - Legal anthropology in a changing South Africa
This article concerns the study of the normative orderings of communities within the state. Rather than putting them on a pedestal,the communities are treated as areas and sources of national law reform. As areas of national law reform they are perhaps best descriptionbed as 'semiÂ·autonomous social fields'. As sources of national law reform they are pointers to the 'living law' which may be in conflict with the state's 'positive law'.
