Professor Chuma Himonga and Mrs. Fatima Diallo prepared the first Integration report that presents the dissolution of customary marriage in the South African legal pluralism context.
The research aims to analyse how the State regulates the co-existence of customary law and official law, and to determine the interactions between different normative systems operating in the country.
The first Integration report responds to the following questions:
1- What indigenous laws and state laws exist with respect to the dissolution of customary marriage and what are the interactions between the two legal systems?
2- Through which formal or informal processes are these interactions organised?
The report is available here :
