Cross-border Criminal Law - a Symposium with European Commissioner and German Minister for Justice

05.10.2010
Globalisation doesn’t spare criminal law. More and more criminal offences are prosecuted across state borders, and often enough acts that are legal at home, are indictable in a neighbouring country.

How Europe‘s judges and state attorneys are to cooperate and how citizens and human rights are to remain intact, isn’t clear. Searching to solve these problems and thus ensuring better legal certainty, is the subject matter at an international conference named “Criminal Justice in Europe: Challenges, Principles and Perspectives” on 22 and 23 October in Luxembourg.

High-ranking politicians such as the German Minister for Justice, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, European Commissioner for Justice, Viviane Reding and Luxembourg Minister for Justice, François Biltgen, as well as renowned scientists and European judges like Marc Jaeger, President of the European Union Court will attend the conference.

The conference is organised by the “Institut Universitaire International Luxembourg” (IUIL) and the University of Luxembourg, and will take place in walking distance from the European Court of Justice in the heart of the EU quarters on Kirchberg. The aim of the participants at the symposium is to find ways to strengthen European Justice. Researchers see this as the best way out of legal uncertainty. “We have to make justice more independent and strengthen it toward the police, better control cross-border cooperation and above all train judges and attorneys to better manage new challenges”, Prof. Dr. Stefan Braum, penologist at the University of Luxembourg and co-organiser of the conference, explains.

The Luxembourgish EU judges therefore plan to build up an “Ecole de la Magistrature” (School of Magistracy), that will ensure training and continuing education of jurists. The conference, such is the organisers’ idea, is to lay the cornerstone for this school.

The complete programme can be downloaded at http://upload.iuil.lu/cj/brochure.pdf. The symposium speeches and debates will be translated into English, French and German simultaneously. Registration is possible until October 18th. Further information available from Raphaël Briche, Tel. +352 -26.15.92.37, or Evelyne Engler, Tel : +352 -26.15.92.17.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
