- Pub. Date:
- Cambridge University Press
Leading scholars describe and discuss criminal procedure throughout England, Belgium, France, Germany and Italy in this study. They provide up-to-date analyses of the main differences and similarities of each system by examining the accusatorial and inquisitorial traditions; cross influences between the two traditions; and current pressures for harmonization. Extended essays include topics on public prosecutors, the rights of victims and defendants, evidence, negotiated justice and media influence. The volume is of interest to academics and postgraduates in criminal law; comparative, E.U. and human rights lawyers; and lawyers interested in European harmonization and in reforming criminal procedure.
