For the open access publication of the book Safeguarding the Quality of Forensic Assessment in Sentencing. A Review Across Western Nations, professor Michiel van der Wolf has received a grant from both NWO and the Open Access Book Fund, recently set up by the University of Groningen.
The book, available from mid-July, provides an interdisciplinary and cross-national perspective on safeguarding the quality of forensic assessment in sentencing offenders.
Taking an in-depth look at seven different Western countries, each chapter provides an overview of the role of assessment in sentencing offenders, as well as a focus on formal ways in which the respective country’s legal system and disciplinary associations protect the quality of forensic assessment.
Each chapter explores how to assure better decision making in individual cases based on assessments of psycholegal concepts such as mental disorder/insanity, criminal responsibility and dangerousness.
