Summary
How much faith do we really place in the institutions that settle our disputes and, at times, determine the fate of individuals? Are there other ways of finding a proper outcome besides the Western system of courts and prisons? Does might make right, and-even if the answer is no-has any society on the planet created a true alternative? This program looks at concepts of justice in various cultures around the world, revealing fascinating differences between accepted forms of law enforcement and criminal punishment. An ideal discussion-launcher for legal studies courses.
