About this book

Introduction

Abadeer incorporates informal norms such as religion, mores, myths, taboos, codes-of-conduct, customary laws, and traditions, into the structure of formal rules (e.g., polity, judiciary, laws, and the enforcement of law), which in turn influence the governance of the transactions.

Reviews

“Adel SZ Abadeer’s interdisciplinary analysis in Norms and Gender Discrimination in the Arab World provides a succinct framework for analyzing the normative structure of gender discrimination as well as its material impact on the status and well-being of women in primarily collectivist societies. This book balances out considerations of cultural relativism, universal human rights, and statistical research through an interdisciplinary lens, which provides a useful methodology for examining gender discrimination in other cultural contexts.” (Lori Bable, Human Rights Review, Vol. 17, 2016)
