  • Immigration and the Crime Drop
    • Authors: Dainis Ignatans; Roger Matthews
      First page: 205
      Abstract: Source: Volume 25, Issue 3, pp 205 - 229The explanations to date of the remarkable decrease in crime that has been reported over the last two decades in a number of western countries have been less than convincing. In light of these limitations this article explores the impact that the recent increase of immigration into the UK may have had on recorded crime levels. Drawing on a range of international research the paper includes some empirical evidence from England and Wales that suggests that in contrast to the popular opinion that increased immigration is associated with an increase in crime, that not only are the recent waves of immigration not linked to rising crime, but also our findings lend qualified support to the contention that recent waves of immigration have contributed to the crime drop that has taken place in the UK and other countries over the last two decades.

  • Terrorist Speech and the Criminal Law – A Comparative Analysis
    • Authors: Johannes Keiler; Alejandra Pujols
      First page: 230
      Abstract: Source: Volume 25, Issue 3, pp 230 - 259This article examines the ways that the criminal justice systems of England and the Netherlands deal with terrorist speech in the form of direct and indirect incitement to terrorism. This contribution commences with a discussion of the conditions under which the criminalisation of terrorist speech is justified. That discussion identifies criteria that must be satisfied if liability for terrorist speech is to be justified. The specific English and Dutch legal frameworks for addressing terrorist speech are then assessed in light of those criteria. This comparison provides the vantage point for a critical analysis of the merits and defects of terrorist speech offences. This contribution ends by identifying and discussing doctrinal elements that must be considered in order to ensure compliance with fundamental principles of criminal law and to prevent over-criminalisation.

  • Retreating From Vinter in Europe: Sacrificing Whole Life Prisoners To Save
           The Strasbourg Court'
    • Authors: Mark Pettigrew
      First page: 260
      Abstract: Source: Volume 25, Issue 3, pp 260 - 277In Vinter and Others v United Kingdom (2013) the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights ruled that existing release mechanisms from a whole life prison sentence in England & Wales contravened Article 3 of the European Convention. Domestically, the defiant legal, and political, response declared the current law as sufficiently clear with no amendments to procedures, or the material governing those procedures, being necessary. In a reversal of the reasoning of Vinter, the Grand Chamber has been persuaded by that response. The ramifications of that most recent ruling, Hutchinson v United Kingdom (2017), are explored which, in the long term, threaten the court’s legitimacy and future.
