    Peckham Street Training is a new collaboration between artist Lottie Child and net-art organisation Furtherfield.org. Peckham Street Training tours introduced new ways of reclaiming public space. The public event explored Street Training's concepts of 'the path of safety and the path of joy', encouraging rediscovery of the urban environment through new moves and activities that were devised by a group of six local children from Year 6, Gloucester Primary School, in Peckham. 30 people took part in the Peckham Street Training tours, with the children from Gloucester Primary School demonstrating to the public the moves they had developed along the route from Peckham Square to their school. "The involvement of the kids was great. It was really good to have a mixture of adults and children at the event, especially having the children lead the adults" - Partipant feedback. Peckham Street Training defined new territory both on the street and online. Peckham Street Training was part of Open House London 2008

    Exploring the mens rea requirements of the Serious Crime Act 2007 assisting and encouraging offences

    Get PDF
    This article examines the mens rea requirements of the new assisting and encouraging offences set out in Part 2 of the Serious Crime Act 2007. Analysing the case of Rv.S&H [2011] EWCA Crim 2872, a case in which the Court of Appeal attempted to clarify this complex and troublesome area, it is demonstrated how and why the court (as well as other academic commentators) have erred in their interpretations of the statute. Moving to clarify these areas of uncertainty, the article then seeks to cast light on concerns about the future operation of these offences, concerns previously hidden by that uncertainty

    Automatism is never a defence

    The central aim of this article is to set out and justify the contention that automatism is never a defence, not even exceptionally. Where D is not at fault for her lack of voluntariness, the term ‘automatism’ is simply a shorthand explanation that D does not satisfy an essential element of every offence: voluntary conduct. Where D is at fault for her lack of voluntariness, the automatism rules (within the current law) become an inculpatory tool through which to substitute the missing offence elements and construct liability. Having recognised that automatism plays an inculpatory role within the law, we analyse this role and conclude that it is defective: prior fault automatism lacks the equivalent blameworthiness necessary to fairly substitute for even missing basic intent offence elements. It is from here that we discuss the possibility of a new automatism offence, to recognise the criminal blameworthiness of D’s conduct in certain cases, but to do so in a coherent manner that appropriately criminalises and labels the defendant. Looking at the outline of the potential new offence we are in a much better position to evaluate the future role of automatism in the criminal law. If we do not believe that such an offence is deserving of criminalisation, then the current law must be changed to prevent prior fault automatism constructing liability under any circumstances. If we do believe that such an offence has a place within the criminal law, then the current law should be changed to reflect this more clearly, and we must focus on exactly how it should be defined

    Child migrants in Africa

    Child Migration in Africa explores the mobility of children without their parents within West Africa. Drawing on the experiences of children from rural Burkina Faso and Ghana, the book provides rich material on the circumstances of children's voluntary migration and their experiences of it. Their accounts challenge the normative ideals of what a 'good' childhood is, which often underlie public debates about children's migration, education and work in developing countries The comparative study of Burkina Faso and Ghana highlights that social networks operate in ways that can be both enabling and constraining for young migrants, as can cultural views on age- and gender-appropriate behaviour. The book questions easily made assumptions regarding children's experiences when migrating independently of their parents and contributes to analytical and cross-cultural understandings of childhood. Part of the groundbreaking Africa Now series, Child Migration in Africa is an important and timely contribution to an under-researched area
