Münster Glossary on Legal Unity and Pluralism

For several years, phenomena of legal unity and pluralism have been intensively researched from the perspectives of various disciplines and in different periods of time. A mutual understanding of central terms and concepts is key to a productive exchange between the different research communities. The Münster Glossary on Legal Unity and Pluralism brings together articles from different disciplinary and epochal perspectives. It aims to facilitate interdisciplinary research by providing a brief introduction into different approaches of the disciplines involved.

The Glossary will be successively expanded and is published twice a year as part of the EViR Working Papers (ISSN: 2749-8166 (print), 2749-8174 (online)) freely accessible in open access. Each issue comes with a citable URN and DOI. It is planned to publish the entire glossary in print at a later date.
