CALL FOR PAPERS
Bi-annual International Conference of
NETHERLANDS JOURNAL OF LEGAL PHILOSOPHY
Friday 29 & Saturday 30 November 2013
VU University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy (NJLP) (formerly known as
Rechtsfilosofie & Rechtstheorie) is
an international, double-blind peer reviewed journal which aims to
encourage the study of legal philosophy, legal theory and the
foundations of the legal sciences. The Journal publishes articles and
reviews in Dutch and in English.
The Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy is pleased to announce its bi-annual international conference on
legal philosophy and legal theory. The conference theme is the presumption of innocence.
presumption of innocence is considered to be a fundamental and
inviolable principle of criminal law. Over the past decades, however,
the emphasis on the rights
of suspect and defendant has given way to a more one-sided instrumental
view of criminal law as a means to reduce risk and attain safety. This
instrumental view puts fundamental principles such as nulla poena, ne
bis in idem, nemo tenetur, in dubio pro reo,
nullum crimen sine culpa, as well as the presumption of innocence under
can think, for example, of recent Acts on Terrorism that do not require
suspicion but merely indications of a terrorist crime, thereby lowering
the level of suspicion required
for investigative activities; of the verdict of the ECtHR in Salabiaku
v. France where the ECtHR allows for a reversal of the burden of proof
in the trial phase; and of the possibility of review after wrongful
acquittals in the post-trial phase.
another respect, however, the presumption of innocence, or at least
evidentiary requirements, has been strengthened over the last two
decades. Partly as a reaction to serious
miscarriages of justice, research has been done with a focus on, among
others, Bayesian statistics and argumentation theory. The aim of this
research is to strengthen the analysis of the evidence and therewith the
motivation of judgements.
Papers are welcomed on the presumption of innocence and papers related to the topics mentioned.
Researchers interested in presenting a
paper at the conference are asked to submit an abstract of 400 words and a short cv.
Researchers interested in organising a 1,5 hour
workshop on a specific theme are asked to submit an abstract of
800 words explicating the theme and the papers and a list of three
speakers plus cv.
fee for the conference is €150. The fee for PhD students and for
subscribers of NJLP (including members
of the VWR) is €100. The fee includes coffee, lunch and tea on Friday
and Saturday and the special issue of the NJLP (2013-3) on the
presumption of innocence with articles of all keynote speakers.
Travelling expenses and accommodation costs are not included.
