Panel Discussion and Book Launch - Penal Censure: Engagements Within and Beyond Desert Theory

The Centre for Penal Theory and Penal Ethics is a research centre within the Institute, working to highlight ethical issues within criminology. Its recently-published edited book, Penal Censure, takes up issues in punishment theory that were first opened up in a 1976 book (Doing Justice) by the founder of the Centre, Professor Andreas von Hirsch, and in von Hirsch’s subsequent grounding of his proposed model of desert-based sentencing in the notion of penal censure. What, if any, kind of censure-based justification of punishment would fully satisfy the penal theorist? And, just as importantly, what are the dangers and costs of a conceptualisation of state punishment as deserved censure in a world without agreement on what our most fundamental values are?
