Advanced Study Group (ASG) at the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies

Layman's description

This ASG centres around the two keywords “Oaths” and “Courts”, and the interaction between them. The independence and impartiality of judges, and the ambition to find the truth through judicial proceedings, have been defined by different types of oaths from Antiquity and onwards. In the ASG, we would like to deepen our understanding of oaths and their importance for truth-finding and the independence and impartiality of judges from different aspects. Through a collaborative effort, we will analyse the substantive content of the oaths and discuss what the standards of independence and impartiality mean when AI becomes part of decision-making.
