    Mul­ti­mo­dal Re­mo­te De­tec­ti­on of Hid­den Threats in Peo­ple Scree­ning (HITD)

    Projektleitung: Philipp Johner (Centre for Se­cur­ity and So­ci­ety)

    In recent attacks in Paris and Brussels, terrorists used weapons and explosive vests to kill or injure as many people possible. To effectively foil such attacks, one must identify perpetrators from a distance and stop them before they reach dense crowds. This is not possible using current means. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), this project aims to develop a…

    The Le­gal As­sess­ment of Cy­ber At­tacks on the Fe­deral Re­pu­blic of Ger­ma­ny with Spe­ci­al Re­gard to Hack-Back as a De­fence Mea­su­re

    Projektleitung: Philipp Johner (Centre for Se­cur­ity and So­ci­ety)

    Cyber attacks on government institutions and information technology systems occur regularly, representing a substantial security threat to Germany and its economic and political interests.

    Re­flec­ti­ons in Gun Laws

    Projektleitung: Friedemann Groth

A cultural legal study, this project offers instructive observations on basic conceptions in legal science. Specifically, it provides a so-called thick description (C. Geertz) of the outer phenomenon ‘gun laws’ to enhance comprehension of deeper phenomena and co…

    Zur re­la­ti­ven Hö­he der Ver­suchss­tra­fe – „Mind the Gap“?

    Projektleitung: Julia O’Rourke

    Während eine Antwort auf die Frage, ob es gerecht ist, den Versuch einer Straftat milder zu bestrafen als ihr erfolgsreiches Pendant, im anglo-amerikanischen Rechtsraum beinahe zum Pflichtprogramm eines jeden auf dem Gebiet der Rechtsphi­lo­so­phie tätigen Wissenschaftlers gehört, wird die Legitimität der hierzulande in § 23 Abs. 2 StGB normierten Regelung kaum explizit hinterfragt, s…
