Law Enforcement

The law enforcement and proper administration of justice research programme aims - both for private law and for criminal (procedure) law - to determine what sanctions may and can be used and under what conditions, and which sanctions are most appropriate for the effective enforcement of private and criminal law standards.

We also investigate how greater coherence can be introduced into the criminal justice system.  In private law and in criminal (procedural) law, the rule of thumb is that the requirements of proper administration of justice are observed when imposing sanctions. Private international law and international (criminal) procedural law should also be taken into account here. We tackle this broad topic on the basis of six lines of research.

Under news you can find more information about the research unit's recent publications, research projects, study days and conferences.
