University of Adelaide North Tce Campus

Dr Juliette Lelieur, Associate Professor of Law visiting from the University of Strasbourg, will deliver a paper entitled: ‘Freezing and confiscating criminal assets in the European Union’

Date: 20 March 2017

Time: 1.00-2.00pm

Venue: Room 5.15, 5th Floor, Ligertwood Building

Abstract: This paper examines the confiscation of the proceeds of crime, which was first recognised as an effective way to punish lucrative organised criminal activities in the early 1990s.  It even became apparent that some offenders feared that punishment more than they did a prison sentence.  Soon after the European arrest warrant was adopted in 2002, the European Union began applying the principal of mutual recognition of judicial decisions between Member States to the freezing and confiscation of criminal assets.  EU-Law and the national Law of the Member States adopted sophisticated techniques of confiscation, such as equivalent-value confiscation, extended confiscation, confiscation of the assets of third parties and even confiscation without a criminal conviction.  The European Court of Human rights subsequently ruled on whether these new instruments are compatible with the right of property and the presumption of innocence enshrined in the European Convention of Human rights.

Dr Juliette Lelieur completed her PhD in 2005 at the University of Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne.  She has been a researcher at the Max-Planck-Institute for International and Foreign Criminal Law in Freiburg, Germany, leading the French Law Unit until 2007.  She also worked at the University of Basel, Switzerland, and for the OECD Working Group on Bribery.   She is currently a Member of the National Commission sanctioning failures of the private sector in preventing money laundering.   Dr Lelieur’s research involves international criminal law (international jurisdiction, mutual legal assistance, extradition, European Arrest Warrant, and international freezing and confiscation of criminal assets) and business criminal law (foreign bribery and money laundering).  Her work takes a comparative approach, dealing with French, German and Swiss law.  Dr Lelieur teaches French Criminal Law, International and European Criminal Law and Masters courses in German Criminal Procedure and the Prevention of Money Laundering.

3 July:  In recent years, one of the several turns that signified profound changes in academic research revolved around the multifaceted notion of “space.” The “spatial turn” was enabled, on the one hand, by the availability of advanced new technologies for spatial analysis, such as geographic information systems (GIS) software, and on the other, by the foregrounding of spatial thinking and interpretation in a wide range of fields within the humanities. Thus, with the spatial turn, spatial history emerged as an approach to understanding and writing the history of a nation with reference to the construction of landscape and material culture rather than families and events, and spatial humanities became a new hub of researchers concerned with spatial technology, history, and theory. In the School of Architecture and Built Environment (SABE), spatial studies is an emerging line of study that is bringing together research work in different disciplinary (architecture, landscape, and urbanism) and cultural contexts (Asia, Australia, India, and the Middle East). This emerging line of research will be the focus of a one-day symposium aimed at discussing the various frontiers in spatial thinking that SABE’s researchers are exploring.

7 July:  The idea of “encounter,” whether at the social, cultural, religious, or intellectual level, has, implicitly or explicitly, always been hinged on the notion of “difference.” Difference is what provokes curiosity, fascination, confrontation, animosity, and togetherness, and what makes an encounter exciting, noteworthy, and significant. Yet difference, assumed or real, tends to separate, disconnect, and distance; it stimulates, reifies, and even glorifies distinction, so that the dynamic of encounter can be justified and maintained. But what happens when difference dissolves in the closeness of an encounter, or is consumed in the intensity of familiarity? What happens when distinction is not, or no longer, the stimulating factor in an encounter, when similarity and togetherness become the underlying motivation, or when indifference, disinterest, and apathy take over? This one-day workshop will examine historical encounters of Islam and the West in their multiple intellectual, cultural, and spatial settings in search for new modes of understanding and enabling possibilities of creative exchange.
