Book Launch & Panel Discussion: ‘Proportionality in Crime Control and Criminal Justice’
The two-hour on­li­ne event will con­sist of a wel­co­me mes­sa­ge by Pro­fes­sor Ro­bert Spa­no (Pre­si­dent of the Eu­ro­pean Court of Hu­man Rights), in­tro­duc­to­ry re­marks by Pro­fes­sors An­drew As­hworth (Uni­ver­si­ty of Ox­ford), R A Duff (Uni­ver­si­ty of Stir­ling) and Lu­cia Zed­ner (Uni­ver­si­ty of Ox­ford), a brief pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the vo­lu­me’s con­tent by its edi­tors, a pa­nel dis­cus­si­on with the con­tri­bu­ting au­t­hors and a Q&A ses­si­on with the au­dience. The pa­nel dis­cus­si­on will be led by three aca­de­mic com­men­ta­tors, Pro­fes­sors Tat­ja­na Hörn­le (MPI-CSL, Frei­burg), Dou­glas Hu­sak (Rut­gers Uni­ver­si­ty) and Val­sa­mis Mit­si­legas (Queen Ma­ry Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don), who will com­ment on co­re aspects of the book and its chap­ters and pro­vi­de au­t­hors right of re­p­ly. Points of dis­cus­si­on will be ba­sed on the vo­lu­me’s in­di­vi­du­al con­tri­bu­ti­ons as such and al­so eva­lua­ted in the light of the spe­ci­al to­pic ‘Pro­por­tio­na­li­ty and Cri­mi­nal law in a State of Emer­gen­cy’. The aim is to high­light the re­le­van­ce of the book’s cen­tral to­pic to cur­rent emer­gen­cy is­su­es causing go­ver­n­ments and in­ter­na­tio­nal or­ga­ni­sa­ti­ons to ad­opt high­ly in­tru­si­ve re­stric­ti­ve mea­su­res and new (oc­ca­sio­nal­ly ex­tre­me) se­cu­ri­ty and sur­veil­lan­ce re­gi­mes.

Pro­por­tio­na­li­ty in Cri­me Con­trol and Cri­mi­nal Ju­sti­ce’ is edi­ted by Em­ma­nouil Bil­lis, Nan­dor Knust and Jon Pet­ter Rui and pu­blis­hed by Hart Pu­blis­hing [Ox­ford, UK; 408 pp; ISBN (Hard­back): 9781509938605]. This vo­lu­me seeks to re­as­sess the old and to ana­ly­se and de­ve­lop no­vel ap­proa­ches to the no­ti­on of pro­por­tio­na­li­ty in cri­mi­nal mat­ters and the new se­cu­ri­ty ar­chi­tec­ture. It of­fers an in­ter­dis­ci­pli­na­ry and cross-ju­ris­dic­tio­nal ex­plo­ra­ti­on of high­ly to­pi­cal, pro­por­tio­na­li­ty-re­la­ted is­su­es per­ti­nent to penal theo­ry and le­gal phi­lo­so­phy, cri­mi­na­li­sa­ti­on po­li­cies, se­cu­ri­ty and an­ti-ter­ro­rism stra­te­gies, al­ter­na­ti­ve ty­pes of ju­sti­ce de­li­ve­ry, and su­pra­na­tio­nal en­for­ce­ment as well as hu­man rights and in­ter­na­tio­nal cri­mi­nal and hu­ma­ni­ta­ri­an law. The 21 con­tri­bu­ting au­t­hors from the UK, the US, Con­ti­nen­tal Eu­ro­pe and Scan­di­na­via are lea­ding schol­ars and prac­ti­tio­ners in the fields of cri­mi­nal law and ju­sti­ce, pu­blic and com­pa­ra­ti­ve law, le­gal and po­li­ti­cal theo­ry and le­gal phi­lo­so­phy.
