Muslimische Friedensrichter tragen keine Robe und haben keine juristische Ausbildung. Und doch sind sie Schlüsselfiguren einer islamischen Paralleljustiz, die das deutsche Rechtssystem zunehmend aushebelt. Gemeinsam mit deutschen Strafverteidigern setzen sie durch, dass Messerstecher, Betrüger und Mörder straflos bleiben. Polizei und Gerichte schauen den Machenschaften ohnmächtig zu. Joachim Wagner beschreibt spektakuläre Fälle und enthüllt, wie unsere Justiz vor einer fremden Rechtskultur kapituliert. Friedensrichter klingt nach einem ehrbaren Beruf. Doch unbemerkt von der Öffentlichkeit und sogar der Justiz hat sich in muslimisch geprägten Einwanderervierteln eine islamische Paralleljustiz etabliert. In den Verhandlungen zwischen den Täter- und Opferfamilien geht es oft alles andere als friedlich zu: Um Schulden einzutreiben oder die Gegenseite einzuschüchtern wird erpresst, geprügelt und geschossen und selbst mit Mord gedroht. Sind sich Täter und Opfer einig, wird die Strafjustiz massiv behindert. Richter erleben regelmäßig, dass sich Opfer und Zeugen schlagartig an nichts mehr erinnern, frühere Aussagen bagatellisieren oder Aussagen vor Gericht verweigern. Dadurch wird das Strafmonopol des deutschen Rechtsstaates systematisch unterlaufen. Joachim Wagner hat intensiv recherchiert. Er hat Strafakten analysiert und ausführlich Kriminalbeamte, Staatsanwälte, Richter, Strafverteidiger, Streitschlichter und Islamwissenschaftler interviewt. Sein Buch ist auch ein Justizkrimi, der in eine verborgene Welt führt: Es schildert die rätselhaften Rituale von Familien- und Stammesfehden und die Machtkämpfe von kriminellen arabischen und türkischen Clans.

Investigating Difference is the first book to provide an overview of such a broad range of diverse groups within the criminal justice system. It encompasses the full spectrum from cultural, gender and religious diversity, to the diversity presented by individuals in disadvantaged aged categories, with physical and mental disabilities, and from immigrant backgrounds. Groups perceived as different are presented in the context of not only offenders and victims, but as service-providers. The book presents issues of difference in a balanced social and historical context. The authors represent an expansive and diverse group of leading educators, researchers, and criminal justice professionals. Together, they show readers how the power and the powerless form an essential framework for understanding the relationship between the criminal justice system and those members categorized as different. This book will help some, many for the first time, confront the consequences of difference, and the reality that someone else may have defined both the difference and the consequence. Readers will be shown how some categories carry privilege and responsibility, while other categories carry burden and/or rejection. For anyone interested in the criminal justice system with regard to diversity and multicultural issues.

'The social landscape of 'race' and 'ethnicity' within contemporary Britain has become increasingly diverse and complex. The old, exclusive research emphasis in criminology on the outcomes of social inequalities and policies is now challenged by an appreciation of how race and ethnicity are constructed and other theoretical perspectives. This collection of papers will introduce students to these subjects, and do so usefully by addressing contemporary themes that must be given attention by criminologists.' - Professor Simon Holdaway, University of Sheffield 'This collection provides useful and up-to-date information on the response of police, prosecution, prisons and probation services to the challenges of increasing ethnic diversity. It is an excellent source for students and practitioners concerned with reforming policy and improving practice.' - Professor David J. Smith, University of Edinburgh & London School of Economics This text delivers a comprehensive overview of race and ethnicity across the criminal justice system. It unpacks terms such as 'race', 'diversity' and 'multiculturalism' to equip students with a thorough understanding of this complex subject area. Featuring chapters by leading experts, Race and Criminal Justice provides a specialist introduction to each area of the criminal justice system, including police, prosecution, prisons and probation. It also features stimulating discussion of contemporary issues, such as criminal justice responses to refugees and asylum seekers, and the experiences of Muslims within the criminal justice system post-9/11 and 7/7. Each chapter follows a consistent structure, offering: " an overview of key theories relating to the study of race, ethnicity and criminal justice " analysis of research, policy and practice " chapter summaries and further reading to support understanding.

The expression of an Islamic political radicalism in Britain has been one of the most dramatic developments in recent decades. Islamic Radicalism and Multicultural Politics explores the nature of this phenomenon by analysing the origins of Islam and its historical contact with Western Europe and Britain, and the emergence of Islamic political radicalism in the Muslim world and in the West. Tahir Abbas draws on historical analysis and contemporary case studies to explore the post-war immigration and integration of Muslim groups, the complex relations that exist between a secular liberal Britain and a diverse but multifaceted Islam, and the extent of social and economic inequalities that affect Muslims as individual citizens and in local area communities. He shows how violent extremism among British Muslims is in reality influenced by a range of issues, including the factors of globalisation and contemporary politics, media and culture. Analysing and dissecting public policy, Abbas offers suggestions for tackling the major social, political and economic questions facing British Muslims in the post-7/7 era. An important contribution to the study of religion, ‘race’ and ethnicity in modern Britain, this accessible work will be of interest to anyone working in the field of Islamic studies, sociology and political radicalism.

This collection of original essays provides detailed analyses of multicultural approaches to a multiethnic reality and how multiculturalism holds together the fabric of society in the Aloha State. Each contributor notes that a considerable number of ethnic groups take pride in their cultural heritage, speak the language of their ancestors, have developed a unique local culture, and coexist with those who are part of a mainland culture. That Hawai'i is a case of successful multiculturalism is also evidenced by a high rate of cross-ethnic inter-marriage, a lack of group scapegoating, and an absence of recent ethnic violence. That Hawai'i has serious economic, political, and social problems is undeniable, but the manner in which they are addressed is a lesson to other parts of the world. Index. Bibliography.

How, and to what extent, can religion be included within commitments to multiculturalism? Multiculturalism and Religious Identity addresses this question by examining the political recognition and management of religious identity in Canada and India. In multicultural policy, practice, and literature, religion has until recently not been included within broader discussions of multiculturalism, perhaps due to worries of potential for conflict with secularism. This collection undertakes a contemporary analysis of how the Canadian and Indian states each approach religious diversity through social and political policies, as well as how religion and secularism meet both philosophically and politically in contested public space. Although Canada and India have differing political and religious histories - leading to different articulations of multiculturalism, religious diversity, and secularism - both countries share a commitment to ensuring fair treatment for the different religious communities they include. Combining broader theoretical and normative reflections with close case studies, Multiculturalism and Religious Identity leads the way to addressing these timely issues in the Canadian and Indian contexts.

This edited collection provides readers with a superb introduction to some of the contemporary issues related to diversity, community, and justice in the Canadian context. Grounded in theories of community justice and applied social justice, the text provides a historical, theoretical, and intersectional approach to understanding justice and its everyday manifestations for members of diverse populations in Canadian society. Diversity, Justice, and Community encourages reflection on the systemic factors that result in the production of criminality in marginalized and oppressed communities. The authors highlight the ways in which differently located groups—including Indigenous peoples, women and girls, Black males, Somali youths, the South Asian community, and transgendered prisoners—experience the justice system, while also critiquing standard notions of justice and equity and pointing towards potential solutions to combat inequalities at both the community and institutional level. Disrupting the taken-for-granted assumptions regarding who is a criminal, Diversity, Justice, and Community takes an honest look at both the challenges and the opportunities that exist for Canada’s increasingly multiracial, multi-ethnic, multicultural, and religiously and sexually diverse population. Featuring chapter objectives, discussion questions, and additional resources, this engaging text is ideal for students in criminal justice, police studies, police foundations, and criminology programs.
