CALL FOR PAPERS – SPECIAL ISSUE: CRIMINAL INSANITY IN THEORY AND PRACTICE

 

In this special edition of Bergen Journal of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice we will bring together different important perspectives on criminal insanity and its consequences. The focus will be on Norwegian law, although the issues that will be raised are of general importance.  This edition will include legal, philosophical, ethical, medical and historical theoretical perspectives on criminal insanity. In addition we will include also practical perspectives, from forensic and legal experts working within the Norwegian legal framework for dealing with criminally insane offenders.
