Genesis, correction and prevention of wrongful convictions


Date: 23 - 24 November 2017
Convenors: Stephan Barton (Bielefeld, GER), Marieke Dubelaar (Leiden, NED), Ralf Kölbel (München, GER), Michael Lindemann (Bielefeld, GER)

Every legal system is prone to mistakes. Therefore, the German criminal justice system, too, is not immune to wrongful convictions. Despite some spectacular cases of wrongful convictions which were revealed in the recent past, the general prevalence of the phenomenon in question has been poorly explored so far. Against this background, the first objective of the working group was to conduct a systematic review of the current state of research regarding wrongful convictions and to categorize the knowledge gained so far. In pursuit of this aim, a total of 17 presentations in German and English language covered the international, interdisciplinary and interprofessional dimensions of the general topic and thus provided the basis for intense and fruitful discussions amongst about 120 participants. A very lively panel debate completed the working group and created impulses for further research activities regarding wrongful convictions.
