Call for Papers to 10th Crime and Punishment Film Festival
As Istanbul University Faculty of Law, Criminal Law and Criminology Research and Application Center, we are organizing the 10th International Crime and Punishment Film Festival this year.
Our festival, held with an academic program, has a very unique place among thematic film festivals. The first feature of our festival is that our theme is justice and that we have a screening program that includes films that reflect this theme. Another feature of ours is the international symposium that we hold in parallel with the screening program.
This year, the theme of the festival academic program is “I am innocent”. The right to a fair trial, which forms the basis of the state of law, is important both in terms of Public Law and Private Law. Within this framework, the theme of “I am innocent” will be discussed in our academic program with many different dimensions in terms of all areas of law.
The subject matter of the papers should fall under the theme of the Festival academic program as described above, while the sub-themes enumerated below may be regarded as non-exhaustive suggestions.
