Criminal Conversations

Posted on 05/08/2016

The Yeoh Tiong Lay Centre for Politics, Philosophy & Law hosted this year’s Criminal Conversations 2016 symposium in June at Somerset House.

Criminal Conversations is an annual symposium held across a week in the summer, and inspired by similarly informal meetings held at Uppsala University in Sweden. Participants are encouraged not to give complete papers as such, but to float work-in-progress and to bounce ideas around: the symposium invites the presentation of ideas, rather than of formal papers. Powerpoint and other electronic presentations are, of course, verboten.

This year’s discussions were led variously by Andrew Ashworth, Antje du Bois-Pedain, James Edwards, Andrew Simester, John Stanton-Ife, and Findlay Stark, ranging over such topics as Standing in Criminal Law, Duties of Citizenship, Taxation and the Harm Principle, Complicity and Group Violence, and the Role of the Judiciary in Law Reform. The programme was a successful follow-up to the inaugural Criminal Conversations 2015 hosted by the Centre for Centre for Penal Theory and Ethics at the University of Cambridge, and organised by Professor Andrew Simester, now Edmund-Davies Professor of Criminal Law at King’s.

The next event will run in June 2017.
