Kurzfassung auf Englisch:

This paper focuses on the function and the significance of non-state justice institutions, a phenomenon that has received a great deal of attention in jurisprudence lately. The question of their official recognition by state law is a major issue in the discourses of comparative constitutional law and law & development. This paper discusses the benefits and flaws of nonstate justice institutions with respect to the rule of law. It focuses on various forms of state regulation of non-state justice institutions, and analyses how such regulations are formed in different countries and which regulatory motives they are based on. Different legislative models that serve to provide the connection between the non-state justice institutions and the state legal system and judiciary can be distinguished. The conceptual considerations in this paper are complemented by brief study reports of eight cases of non-state institutions from seven different countries. The paper reveals that non-state justice institutions are not a phenomenon in weak states only, but exist under various conditions of weak and strong statehood. The form of their incorporation and regulation depends on the condition of the over-all legal order.
