- Social Control, Inclusion and Exclusion
- Legal Pluralism and Comparative Law
The project is carried out as an ethnographic study of court cases in the West Bank, analyzed from a perspective drawing on postcolonial theory, critical criminology and sociology of law.
The aim is to scrutinize to what extent, and in which ways, colonial history, a weak state, and legal pluralism in Palestine have an impact on the conception and handling of violence.
Nafstad hopes to generate new knowledge about: conceptions of violence, and various ways of handling it; the relationship between conceptions of violence, social control and power structures organizing societies; social control in the West Bank under occupation; and the relationship between western ideas of justice and social control in the global south.
