CONFERENCE MAIN THEME:  

Criminal Justice System In The 21st Century: Between Spirit And Form

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you and your colleagues to attend this conference.  The call for paper can be found below this e-mail.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The modern criminal justice system is a comprehensive system of practices and institutions of governments directed at maintaining social control by mitigating crime. The term ‘Law, Order and Criminal Justice’ is used to cover all the different agencies and organizations that are involved in enforcing law and order, preventing crime and meting out punishment, and how they work together in establishing the principles of equity, fairness and justice.

 

In this fast-changing world, these practices and institutions cannot remain static. They must change and evolve as criminals and syndicates also adapt to the changing system. This conference focuses on the spirit and the form of the following 5 pillars of the criminal justice system:

·      The community

·      Law enforcement

·      Prosecution

·      The court

·      The correctional system

The conference also examines the tension posed by new technologies such as ICT and biotechnology in the ‘form’ of crimes, evidence as well as punishment. The force of globalization and international trade has also given rise to new commercial crimes across border that requires rethinking of traditional concepts such as criminality, evidence gathering and punishment.
