Abstract

The study presented in this book is a direct response to the needs for defining and registering criminal and judicial data on the European level. Based upon work done in creating the European Sourcebook of Crime and Criminal Justice Statistics (ESB), the project results will improve and complement the standards developed so far for definitions and statistical registration in four fields (police, prosecution, courts, prison), in order to contribute to the picture of criminal justice in Europe. Possibilities to optimize the offence definitions used so far in the ESB context were explored. Also, further crime types, especially those subject to EU-harmonized definition, were tested and introduced. Apart from this, the prosecution chapter of the ESB questionnaire was changed and expanded. Data collection possibilities regarding compulsory measures in the investigatory stage were tested, and a more sophisticated approach for recording sanctions and measures as well as prison data was developed. The study explored how far national statistics can provide such data and developed a concept for collation on European level. It was funded by the European Commission under the AGIS 2006 program.

Abstract

Absprachen im Strafprozess werden seit vielen Jahren in Politik, Rechtsprechung und Rechtswissenschaft umfassend und kontrovers diskutiert. Auch das „Gesetz zur Regelung der Verständigung im Strafverfahren“ hat die Diskussion nicht verstummen lassen. Die vorliegende Untersuchung würdigt dieses Gesetz unter Her-anziehung ausgewählter, alternativer Lösungsmodelle aus dem In- und Ausland. Berücksichtigung finden die Rechtsordnungen von England & Wales, Frankreich und Polen. Grundlage für den rechtsvergleichenden Teil ist ein an der Abteilung für Kriminologie, Jugendstrafrecht und Strafvollzug der rechtswissenschaftlichen Fakultät der Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen durchgeführtes internationales Forschungsprojekt.

Abstract

Several instances of war crimes trials are familiar to all scholars, but in order to advance understanding of the development of international criminal law, it is important to provide a full range of evidence from less-familiar trials. This book therefore provides a comprehensive overview, uncovering and exploring some of the lesser-known war crimes trials that have taken place in a variety of contexts: international and domestic, northern and southern, historic and contemporary. It analyses these trials with a view to recognizing institutional innovations, clarifying doctrinal debates, and identifying their general relevance to contemporary international criminal law. At the same time, the book recognizes international criminal law's history of suppression or sublimation: What stories has the discipline refused to tell? What stories have been displaced by the ones it has told? Has international criminal law's framing or telling of these stories excluded other possibilities? And — perhaps most important of all — how can recovering the lost stories and imagining new narrative forms reconfigure the discipline?
