Multi-User Databases on Judicial Decision-Making: from Experience to Best Practice

Dates:
  • Fri 11 Oct 2019 09.30 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-10-11 9:30 2019-10-11 18:00 Europe/Paris Multi-User Databases on Judicial Decision-Making: from Experience to Best Practice

The workshop will bring together the experience gathered in a number of recent and ongoing projects related to judicial databases: Domestic (Israel, Norway, Costa Rica, Germany, USA, Sweden), international (CJEU, ECtHR, IACtHR, Investment Treaty Arbitration) and comparative (V-Dem). The aim of the workshop is to capitalize on the existing expertise and develop best practices in database construction, development and dissemination through discussion and critical assessment.

The speakers and participants will discuss how to access and code court data, which variables to include in multi-user databases, what problems to anticipate, which opportunities to exploit, and how to publish and communicate the data. We will moreover broach general themes, such as how to make these databases relevant to disciplines other than political science (especially to history and law), how to strike the balance between nuance, cost-effectiveness and reliability, and how to deal with legal and ethical aspects of collecting and publishing data on judges and judgments.
