Producció científica: Capítol de llibreCapítol


In this chapter we analyse the way in which the Spanish official legal system is dealing with cultural diversity. Firstly, we introduce the general history and context of the Spanish system(s), emphasizing internal cultural diversity. Secondly, we analyse how cultural rights are protected in Spanish courts, including special procedures for religious minorities. Finally, we describe in detail how the Spanish legal system deals with the Islamic marriage. We conclude that the preference for legislation over case law in Spain may hinder the adaptability of the system that is required in order to deal with cultural diversity.
