Early Career Scholars’ Day 2018 / 10 th Conference on the Future of Adversarial and Inquisitorial Systems

April 25 th, 2018 at the Faculty of Law, University of Basel, Switzerland

Accountability of Criminal Justice Systems
Formation, Application and Enforcement of Law in Changing Circumstances

*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***
Accountability in criminal justice has many dimensions: We expect accurate outcomes, procedural fairness, protections of civil liberties, and respectful treatment of all participants in the criminal justice system to the extent possible. Traditionally, we have accorded great power and influence to expert practitioners in the system − be they police, judges, prosecutors, or defense counsel. As victims, defendants and ordinary citizens increase their ability to tell their stories in new ways, their concerns have changed the way that scholars and politicians think about what it means to be accountable. Whether we start with an inquisitorial or adversarial model, increased transparency in the digital age has led to a corresponding increase in pressure on all of the participants in the system. Competing priorities inevitably lead to tradeoffs between incommensurable interests. Maintaining a legitimate system requires thoughtful engagement to manage potential conflicts, and to rebalance the approaches the participants adopt in light of new information.
In this session, we will hear presentations from early-career scholars writing about accountability in criminal justice from comparative and national law perspectives. We welcome authors interested in critiquing the system from a descriptive or normative perspective, or in proposing new methods, approaches or perspectives that will further the conversation on defining and achieving accountability in criminal justice.

The application should encompass:
− maximum 5 pages of the research subject you would like to present
− CV with full contact details

Application deadline: February 15th, 2018
Application will be sent to the conference coordinator, Professor Sabine Gless, to the following address: sabine.gless@unibas.ch

The selected students will give a presentation of their work in front of their peers.

Then, discussants will include the members of the 10 th Conference on the Future of the Adversarial and Inquisitorial Systems, among them Prof Jackie Hodgson (University of Warwick), Prof Richard Myers (University of North-Carolina at Chapel Hill), Prof Michele Caianiello (University of Bologna), Prof Sabine Gless (University of Basel).

The floor will be open to debates.

Travel expenses linked to the participation at the PhD seminar unfortunately cannot be covered.

We are looking forward to your papers and to welcoming you in Basel!

Best regards,
Michele Caianiello
Sabine Gless
Jackie Hodgson
Richard Myers
