Professor Dr Elies van Sliedregt delivers inaugural lecture

Professor Dr Elies van Sliedregt gave her inaugural lecture, Joint Criminal Confusion - the rise and fall of the joint enterprise theory in English and international criminal law, on 1 December 2016.

The lecture discussed the effect of the Jogee-ruling on debates on joint enterprise in international criminal law. Professor van Sliedregt explored the limits and possibilities of joint enterprise as a liability theory for finding individuals criminally liable for collective forms of violence.
