Max de Vries, LL.M

Max de Vries, PhD student at our faculty, has been awarded a 30,000 euro application from the Lorentz Center in Leiden with three colleagues. The team will use this to organize a four-day interdisciplinary workshop.

Workshop on danger and risk

Principal applicant De Vries submitted the application with Johannes Bijlsma (associate professor of the philosophy of criminal law at our faculty), Anne Ruth Mackor (professor of professional ethics at our faculty) and Gerben Meynen (professor of forensic psychiatry at Utrecht University). With the 30,000 euros they have been awarded, they will organize the workshop 'Dealing with Dangerousness: A Multidisciplinary Perspective on Risk and Prevention in Criminal Law'. During that workshop, leading criminal lawyers, forensic psychiatrists, psychologists and legal philosophers from the Netherlands and abroad will come together to shed further light on the concept of "dangerousness" in criminal law, its relationship to the concept of "risk," and the determination of dangerousness in jurisprudence and forensic practice.

The workshop will take place between 2 and 5 April 2024 at the Lorentz Center in Leiden. Participation is by invitation only.

Lorentz Center

The Lorentz Center is a workshop center that hosts international scientific meetings of typically one week. The workshops are characterized by an open and interactive atmosphere and bring scientific fields and minds together.
