Nous avons l’honneur de vous annoncer que la Faculté des Sciences sociales et politiques (http://fsp.ulb.ac.be/), en collaboration avec la Fondation Emile Bernheim, crée une Chaire Eric Remacle sur l’étude de la paix.

En mai 2013, Eric Remacle, Professeur de Science Politique à l’ULB, disparaissait après avoir, pendant plus de 10 ans, élaboré des projets divers dans le domaine de l’étude de la paix et des conflits. Il aura ainsi contribué à l’intégration dans les programmes de cours d’enseignements spécifiquement dédiés à ces questions, favorisé la recherche fondamentale dans ce domaine et élargi considérablement les activités universitaires, notamment en sollicitant des collaborations avec des partenaires tant en Belgique qu’à l’étranger afin de développer un réseau d’expertise citoyen.

Criminal law has considerably evolved in the last few decades.

A number of new trends have challenged the traditional features of “modern criminal law”. One of the new trends affecting criminal justice systems is the so-called “Europeanisation process”, which is the result of the growing intervention of the EU in the area of criminal law. Another new trend which criminal law and other legal disciplines are facing is the increasingly blurred dividing line between legal categories. Various dimensions of this unclear division between categories have been identified in legal literature, in particular between administrative and criminal law.

This book makes an important contribution to the existing literature on European social democracy in the wake of the 2008 financial crash and ensuing recession. It assesses how social democratic parties have responded, at the national as well as at the European Union level. A wide range of leading political scientists provide the reader with an in-depth understanding of the prospects for social democracy in the midst of an unprecedented crisis for neoliberalism.
