Fair Labelling and Social Solidarity

Fair Labelling and Social Solidarity

(p.67) 5 Fair Labelling and Social Solidarity
Principles and Values in Criminal Law and Criminal Justice

Victor Tadros

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on ‘fair labelling’ in criminal law. It builds upon Ashworth's exposition of fair labelling to explore variant forms of unfairness in the labelling of crimes and the holding of perpetrators to account. It examines the principles which should guide the definition of offences and why fair labelling is important: both in fulfilling the condemnatory function of the criminal law and also in securing public solidarity and confidence in law.

Keywords:   criminal law, unfairness, offences, condemnatory function, public solidarity
