Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of this book. This book emerges as a result of a series of lectures held at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in London from January to March 2006. It focuses on EU institutions and examines their production of policy documents and legal instruments in so far as they deal with the highly contested question of 'integration'. The book deals with the conceptual problems of justice for diasporic minorities and their integration. It then focuses on the controversy in Birmingham surrounding the play, Behzti, providing the global and local contexts in which the controversy took place and deals with the conceptual problems of justice for diasporic minorities and their integration. The book discusses how marriage solemnisation among ethnic minorities is treated within British legal systems and, in particular, focuses on judicial decision making.

Keywords: British legal systems; diasporic minorities; ethnic diversity; judicial decision making; Socio-Legal Perspectives
