TitleThe Panoply of Challenges Facing Modern Identification Evidence and the Evidentiary Reliability of Coincidental Forensics
AuthorsSingh, C.
Description

Crimes such as terrorism pose some of the biggest postmodern challenges faced by criminal justice systems worldwide. How systems react and prevent such crime raises numerous legal, political and strategic issues i.e. cross-jurisdictional collaboration, policing and the erosion of civil liberties such as privacy. In this research, Dr. Singh explores whether cultural criminological theory can be used to solve two specific criminal justice challenges that are posed by terrorism: identification of the perpetrators and the evidentiary reliability of the identification as evidence for prosecution. Dr. Singh uses Foucault's concept of panopticism to develop the idea of 'coincidental forensics' – bringing together the discreet fragments of evidence that often lay hidden within criminality. This is followed by a Benjaminite informed analysis of practitioner responses on its evidentiary reliability. The overarching aim of this research is to highlight the part of the criminal justice process that is often lost or seldom covered in the world-at-large and to make it accessible namely; what happens next.
