    In this article the author explores - on the basis of Mitchel Lasser's book Judicial deliberations - the possibilities of enlarging the legitimacy of the Dutch Cassation Court (Hoge Raad). After a broad theoretical analysis of several concepts of legitimacy he describes the societal position of de Hoge Raad as highest court vis-à-vis rivals, such as the European Courts, the Council of State (Raad van State) and the Council of the Judiciary (Raad voor de rechtspraak). He argues that the cassation institute has to innovate itself and suggest new ways of exerting judicial leadership.

    After a brief analysis of concepts of culture, conflict and conflict resolution, this contribution discusses how mediation and its practices are perceived in different cultures and countries. It appears that mediation is one of the most common forms of conflict resolution applied across a diverse range of cultures. In this respect, the author raises the question whether this also implies that there is a shared understanding of what mediation is or should be.

Burgers over beveiligers

Een kwantitatief onderzoek naar percepties, verwachtingen en oordelen

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Veiligheid, Aflevering 4 2009
Trefwoorden beveiligers, burgers, beveiliging
Auteurs Ronald van Steden, Maddy Roelofs en Mahesh Nalla
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    The employment of private security guards has increased in many European countries in recent decades and the Netherlands is no exception. However, despite large increases in the growth of the private security industry, little is known about how the public perceives agents of private policing and their role in crime prevention and enhancing the public’s sense of safety. In this paper we examine public perceptions of private security personnel. More specifically, we examine citizens’ perceptions and expectations toward the nature of security guards’ work and their relationships with public police, as well as citizens’ level of satisfaction with private security services. Findings suggest that overall Dutch citizens have mixed opinions of security guards. Nonetheless, contrary to what is often assumed about the public image of private security, findings also suggest that respondents are sometimes surprisingly positive in their reactions.

Arbeid en ICMS: opbrengsten, weerstanden en intenties

Tijdschrift Nederlands-Vlaams tijdschrift voor mediation en conflictmanagement, Aflevering 3 2009
Trefwoorden ICMS, Integrated Conflict Management System, arbeidsconflicten
Auteurs Mr. dr. Rob Jagtenberg en Mr. dr. Annie de Roo
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In their contribution ‘Employment and ICMS’, Rob Jagtenberg and Annie de Roo discuss the yields that an integrated conflict management system may bring to individual workers, to the company or organisation, and to society as a whole. Few organisations have adopted ICMS as yet. Therefore, the authors analyse the resistance against introduction of ICMS in some detail, especially resistance on the part of management, which likely will be decisive.Recent developments in the world economy and in politics however, may change the leverage in favour of introducing ICMS still, in the years to come.

Private normstelling: criteria voor toepassing van private regelgeving in de rechtszaal

Tijdschrift RegelMaat, Aflevering 4 2009
Trefwoorden Private normstelling, private regelgeving, rechtsstaat, juridische binding, rechterlijke toetsing
Auteurs mr. A. Kristic, mr. F.A. van Tilburg en mr. P.W.J. Verbruggen
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Private regelgeving geeft blijk van een bepaalde maatschappelijke behoefte aan normstelling door private, niet-statelijke actoren. De regels die uit deze private normstelling voortvloeien, vallen in beginsel buiten ‘het recht’ in de zin van artikel 79 Wet RO. Als gevolg blijft ook de toepassing van private regelgeving door de rechter beperkt. In deze bijdrage wordt via een analyse van de rechtsstaat een aanzet gedaan tot het formuleren van criteria aan de hand waarvan de rechter een gemotiveerd oordeel kan vormen betreffende de juridische binding van private regelgeving in een concreet geschil.

Access_open Collective Responsibility, National Peoples, and the International Order

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 2 2009
Trefwoorden collective responsibility, international legitimacy, global justice
Auteurs prof. Ronald Tinnevelt
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This paper critically scrutinizes Pettit’s defence of corporate and collective responsibility in the light three questions. First, does Pettit successfully argue the passage from corporate responsibility to the responsibility of embryonic group agents, in particular nations? Second, are representation and the authorial and editorial dimensions of democratic control sufficient to ensure that a state is under the effective and equally shared control of its citizens? Third, what kind of international order is required to prevent states from being dominated?

What Works in Probation?

Tijdschrift PROCES, Aflevering 3 2009
Trefwoorden probation, corrections, desistance, rehabilitation, resettlement
Auteurs Prof. Fergus McNeill
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In this paper the author argues that, despite the apparently technical nature of questions of effectiveness, in fact any considered and critical analysis of the empirical evidence about desistance, rehabilitation and ‘what works?’ compel us to consider the moral character and context of criminal justice interventions.

Access_open ‘The Soviet Union did not have a legal system’

An interview with Jeremy Waldron on the methodology debate, historic injustice and the citation of foreign law

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 1 2009
Trefwoorden normative positivism, historic injustice, restitution of property rights, citation of foreign law, methodology debate
Auteurs Kees Quist en Wouter Veraart
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This interview with Jeremy Waldron covers three topics. Firstly, we dealt with the methodology debate, that is, the discussion about how to proceed in analyzing the nature of law. Does the question ‘What is law?’ require a descriptive analysis of the concept of law or, rather, a normative exercise in political philosophy? Secondly, we spoke about the role of law in response to historic injustice, especially in relation to the restitution of property rights. On this topic Waldron vindicates the ‘supersession-thesis’, the idea that, due to changed circumstances and the passage of time, historic injustices become superseded. The third section of the interview is devoted to Waldron’s perspective on the citation of foreign law by national judges.

Access_open Autonomie als voorwaarde tot legaliteit

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 1 2009
Trefwoorden autonomie, legaliteit, Brouwer, Fuller, certificering
Auteurs Pauline Westerman
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Brouwer defended the view that the autonomy of the individual citizen is furthered by articulated, precise and clear legislation. The question arises whether all kinds of rules can be said to enhance such autonomy. It is argued that a distinction should be drawn between rules that dictate desirable outcomes, on the one hand, and rules that determine the way the game is played, on the other. Rules of the game often reflect the way they were drafted and can be seen as the embodiment of power relations between rule-makers. Rules that dictate outcomes, on the other hand, are often drafted by experts who analyse the goals to be reached. The view is defended that only rules of the game – potentially – enhance the autonomy of the citizen, whereas outcome-rules are potentially manipulative, tending to exclude those who are ill-equipped to realize the prescribed outcomes. The virtues of rules therefore do not merely reside in their clear and precise nature, but are largely derived from their capacity to regulate the relations amongst citizens who were included in the process of rulemaking.
