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: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: A space-time sensor for light-matter interactions

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.

The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...
