Abstract [en]

In the frame of the free reception and evaluation of evidence where the court decides what has been proofed in the case, misunderstandings during the fact gathering can lead to a wrong decision. From this perspective multicultural situations are extremely challenging. Therefore, cultural and multicultural differences should be taken into consideration much more. They should be a part in the legal education and there should be more discussion on the topic. In addition, court proceedings should be organized in such a way:where different cultural needs are taken into consideration. Judges should also be more aware of the legal ethnology.
