Is it possible for the state simultaneously to respect deep cultural differences and to protect the hard-won citizenship rights of vulnerable group members, particularly women? This 2001 book argues that it is not only theoretically needed, but also institutionally feasible. Rejecting prevalent normative and legal solutions to this 'paradox of multicultural vulnerability', Multicultural Jurisdictions develops a powerful argument for enhancement of the jurisdictional autonomy of religious and cultural minorities while at the same time providing viable legal-institutional solutions to the problem of sanctioned intra-group rights violation. This new 'joint governance' approach is guided by an innovative principle that strives for the reduction of injustice between minority groups and the wider society, together with the enhancement of justice within them. This book will interest students of political and social theory, law, religion, institutional design, as well as cultural and gender studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an excellent example of the kind of new comparative law theory and application appearing in many recent texts...where the definition of legal culture is expanded, and the exciting and creative prospects for cross-fertilization are apparent. This book should be regarded as a necessary addition to these new voices." International Journal of Legal Information
"Shachar's book addresses an important problem and is full of rich insights." American Political Science Review
