After the dictatorships and armed conflicts of the latter half of the 20th century, Latin American security has entered a new stage. Politically motivated armed groups are subsiding, while new criminal actors (drug cartels, transnational gangs, and criminal organizations) are flourishing from Mexico to Brazil. The protection of human rights in the fight against crime is adapting to this new reality.
The Seattle Journal for Social Justice is excited to announce its symposium entitled “Police Brutality: Its Chilling Effect and Innovative Solutions” on Friday, April 6th, 2018. We will examine this crucial issue from contrasting perspectives. We hope to explore the challenges and fundamental changes needed to address this issue. The journal welcomes papers for presentation at this symposium and for potential publication in the Seattle Journal for Social Justice.

Call For Papers
This new research project a) analyses foundational concepts in international criminal law, b) correlates the teachings of leading philosophers of law and scholars with international criminal law, and c) explores, against this background, the potential and limits of international criminal law. By generating such knowledge and perspectives, the project i) seeks to clarify and deepen the intellectual roots of the discipline of international criminal law.
We are pleased to present a new research project on challenges in pre-investigations or ‘preliminary examinations’. Such examinations are required to determine whether there is reasonable basis to proceed with criminal investigation. They afford the prosecution wide discretion – be it in national or international jurisdictions – and often involve a large degree of uncertainty for those directly concerned.
