21st Century Transnational Crime

This seminar examines the rise of “plea bargain-like” prosecutorial practices in jurisdictions across Europe whose legal culture stands in fundamental opposition to such practices.

Dr Marianne Wade will seek to demonstrate how these procedural shortcuts have come to determine practitioners’ understanding of justice in a number of settings.

The societal impact and public perception of these practices will be examined, and European examples contrasted with the USA, where the plea bargain model is routinely applied.

Session Leads: Dr Marianne Wade, Birmingham Law School, Reader, Fellow of the Institute for Global Innovation

Professor Siddhartha Bandyopadhyay, Professor of Economics, Director, Centre for Crime, Justice and Policing, Fellow of the Institute for Global Innovation
