De ISD in retrospectief

Tijdschrift Justitiële verkenningen, Aflevering 2 2009
Auteurs M. van Ooyen-Houben en M. Goderie
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    The Act introducing the Institution for Persistent Offenders Committal Order (ISD Order) took effect on 1 October 2004. The origins of the ISD Order are in safety policy. The order had a strong focus on imprisonment of persistent offenders. It can be seen as an exponent of the risk-oriented attitude towards safety, which has been predominant in recent years. At the start treatment of persistent offenders was of secundary importance and was only available for those who were motivated. But the ISD measure has had to deal with major problems in practice. The imprisoned ISD population proved to be one with complex problems like addiction, psychiatric illnesses and sometimes low intellectual abilities. The ISD institutions are ill-equipped for handling these people. The problems led to a slightly different attitude which is more oriented towards resocialization. Improvements are going on now, a process facilitated by a considerably improved co-operation between agencies around the ISD.

    Charles Kindleberger unravelled the anatomy of a typical financial crisis in his famous book Manias, panics and crashes (1978). He stresses that during a boom the tendency to swindle and be swindled runs parallel to the tendency to speculate. In this article five famous and non-famous swindles over the past ninety years are analyzed. Each financial boom, and each financial crisis during this period of modern capitalism experienced at least one famous financial swindle, which is to be seen as typical for the boom and the subsequent deception. The five swindlers described are Charles (Carlo) Ponzi in the 1920s, Ivar Krueger around 1930, Bernie Cornfeld in the 1960s/1970s, Michael Milken in the 1980s and - very recently - Bernard Madoff. His 65 billion dollar fraud is to be seen as the first worldwide Ponzi scheme - a fraud that lasted longer, reached wider and cut deeper than any similar scheme in history. An analysis of these five cases yields several striking similarities. It is concluded that financial swindles are no random events, but the result of both structural changes and circular waves of economic and financial boom and bust.

    Many actors have been blamed for the financial crisis: Greenspan, banks, rating agencies, careless mortgage takers and incompetent mainstream economists. This paper however focusses on other explanations for the crisis which are usually neglected in mainstream economics. The imbalances in the income and wealth distribution worldwide have become so large, that the poor cannot buy the goods produced by rich countries anymore, while the rich have become so rich that they cannot spend all their income anymore in the real sector. This lack of demand for goods has artificially been filled by unsecured debts given to the poor, but eventually led to a taking off of financial markets, and to a crisis. When imbalances are too large, this backfires. Government packages aimed at stabilizing the economy should therefore not forget the income and wealth distribution in order to be successful in the long run.

    This article describes the development of the Dutch bar, which seems to follow the international trends, the Anglo-Saxon trends in particular. These trends are internationalization, commercialization, organizational professionalization, specialization and differentiation. The Dutch bar nowadays consists of approximately 15.000 advocates, working in approximately 3.800 law firms. Approximately 3.500 advocates work in the Top 30 law firms, whereas the firms consisting of one advocate form the majority of the bar. Particularly during the last decade the bar has grown tremendously due to an increase in demand for specialistic legal service and advice. Due to new developments the client has become more prominent when it comes to determining the quality of the legal service, a phenomenon also known as ‘simultaneity’.

    In spite of the recent growing international naval presence in the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean Somali pirates still continue to attack passing merchantmen trying to hijack these and kidnap the crews. It seems logic to consider what security measures can be taken on the ships themselves against piracy attacks. After analyzing the dilemmas surrounding armed self-defence the author describes how various technological devices, some still developing, could contribute to greater security on board. Just as important however, is the development and appliance of an anti-piracy policy, at the shipping company as well as on board. Information sharing and communication are crucial to an efficient anti-piracy policy. Also crewmembers should know what to expect when a piracy attack occurs and how to act. The structural protection of important waterways is a primary task for naval forces, while the merchantmen themselves could take care of primary protection against piracy attacks. This would diminish their dependence on naval presence, which can never be large enough to effectively prevent piracy.

    Traditionally there was a lot of admiration in Russia for the social bandits in the sixteenth en seventeenth centuries. Later, under the Soviets, other brave political bandits, better known as revolutionaries, were praised. In addition, there were vory v zakone and the prisoners of Gulag. In this article the link between politics and crime in the Soviet and post-Soviet Russia is analyzed. In order to understand the emergence of old and new criminals it is necessary to follow the historical development of this interrelationship.

Overgang van onderneming: wat niet weet, deert toch

HR 26 juni 2009, JAR 2009/183 (Frits Bos/Pax Integrated Logistics B.V.)

Tijdschrift Arbeidsrechtelijke Annotaties, Aflevering 3 2009
Trefwoorden overgang van onderneming, informatieverplichting, goed werkgeverschap
Auteurs Dr. R.M. Beltzer
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    De informatieverplichting bij overgang van onderneming heeft in de nationale rechtspraak nooit een grote rol gespeeld. Dat lijkt te zijn veranderd door hetgeen de Hoge Raad in het arrest Bos/Pax heeft overwogen: onvoldoende informatievoorziening kan ertoe leiden dat de werknemer geen afgewogen keuze heeft kunnen maken wel of niet mee over te gaan, hetgeen tot gevolg kan hebben dat een niet-overgegane werknemer jaren later alsnog een andere werkgever blijkt te hebben. Deze uitspraak heeft daarom belangrijke gevolgen voor de praktijk.

A pilgrim’s progress

A reflection on how the mediation process in Construction has evolved into the hands of the legal profession

Tijdschrift Nederlands-Vlaams tijdschrift voor mediation en conflictmanagement, Aflevering 4 2009
Trefwoorden quantity surveyor, Construction disputes, lawyers
Auteurs Stuart Ness
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    After having explained what the function and role of a quantity surveyor is, the author describes his first acquaintance with mediation in the construction industry. One of his major observations is that ‘we quantity surveyors have been mediating long before mediation was a twinkle in the eyes of the legal fraternity’.


Stuart Ness
Stuart Ness, is a chartered quantity surveyor with extensive experience in international construction claims case management and dispute resolution. He is also an accredited mediator under the auspices of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, London, and is the founding chairman of the Netherlands chapter of the Institute.

    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.

Access_open Nussbaum’s Capabilities Approach: In Need of a Moral Epistemology?

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 3 2009
Trefwoorden Martha Nussbaum, Capabilities Approach, moral epistemology, objectivity, residues of justice, Bernard Williams, political moralism
Auteurs Mr. Iris van Domselaar
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Although Nussbaum’s “Capabilities Approach” (CA) clearly expresses a commitment to objectivity, this article argues that this commitment is rather ambiguous due to the conception of public reason it endorses. In particular, the CA cannot account for an objective justification of public reason, given certain characteristics of public reason. As a result, the CA jeopardizes the substantive aim it has set itself: to provide an objective justification for public choices regarding human capabilities and their specifications.

Trefwoorden rechterlijke macht, uniforme rechtstoepassing, Wet RO
Auteurs Mr. drs. G. de Groot
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In 2003 verscheen in dit tijdschrift een kroniek getiteld ‘Rechterlijke macht’. Die draad wordt hier opgepakt. Gezien de periode die sindsdien is verstreken, kan in deze kroniek slechts een gering deel van de ontwikkelingen in de organisatie van de civiele rechtspraak sinds 2003 aan de orde komen. De aandacht zal in het bijzonder uitgaan naar de uniforme rechtstoepassing en naar de voorziene wijzigingen in de organisatie van de civiele rechtspraak in eerste aanleg.

Auteurs Andries Zoutendijk
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Het aantal bejaarde gedetineerden is de laatste jaren sterk toegenomen en vanwege de vergrijzing zal dit aantal de komende jaren verder stijgen. Het detineren van bejaarden vormt voor het gevangeniswezen een uitdaging. In dit artikel wordt beschreven hoe het gevangeniswezen met deze populatie omgaat en hoe de bejaarde gedetineerden hun straf ervaren, met onder andere aandacht voor de veiligheidsbeleving, dagbesteding, contacten met medegedetineerden en PIW’ers, gezondheid en medicijngebruik.
