Law and Society in East Asia

This seminar aims to discuss the social / historical bases on which a modern legal system might operate in various East Asian societies, and to provide an introduction to some of those problems involving the integration of different legal traditions into a pluralistic yet coherent legal regime. We will focus on the tensions experienced by these
societies, involving the importation of what were presented as "universal" values and norms, and the near-universal resistance to these values and norms, such resistance being based on the notions of custom and tradition. While the initial focus will be mainly on the experiences concerning the formation of legal institutions in China and Japan, students will be encouraged to bring in perspectives from other societies as well. The problems discussed will include: the difficulties regarding what exactly can be identified as East Asian legal traditions; how legal regimes were structured through the actions of actors exploiting the plurality of legal traditions; and how the relationship between legal arrangements and the political power-structure played out. Particular attention will also be paid to the issues of colonialism, and the uneasy relationship between Modernisation, Westernisation and Colonisation in these societies. The ability to read source materials written in Chinese and/or Japanese would be of much help, but will not be essential.

授業計画
Details will be determined at the beginning of term, taking into account the particular interests and linguistic abilities of each participant.
授業の方法
Participants will be asked to attend class having completed the weekly reading assignment. Each session will typically begin with a short presentation by one of the participants on a topic related to the reading assignment, and it is hoped that this presentation will set the stage for lively discussion among participants. Non-native speakers of English in particular should also see the seminar as an opportunity to improve their abilities in oral discussion conducted in English.

履修上の注意
Students will be expected to take part in the discussions in English. Traditionally this class has had a mixture of Japanese and Foreign students with diverse backgrounds, and the discussions have been at their most interesting when they have highlighted the different values and assumptions held by participants from different cultures.
