Research School on Retaliation, Mediation and Punishment (REMEP)
The Research School is designed as an interdisciplinary research network connecting four Max Planck Institutes and two universities. The contributing partners include the following:
- Social anthropology – Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and MPI for Social Anthropology, Halle/Saale.
- Criminology, international law – MPI for Foreign and International Criminal Law, Freiburg i.Br. and University of Freiburg
- Legal history - MPI for European Legal History, Frankfurt/Main.
- Public law - MPI for Comparative Public Law and International Law, Heidelberg (until 2012).
Bertram Turner was the coordinator and tutor of the Halle group from 2008 to 2013.
A first result of the interdisciplinary cooperation is the following edited volume on 'Retaliation':
Günther Schlee & Bertram Turner eds. (2008) Vergeltung. Eine interdisziplinäre Betrachtung der Rechtfertigung und Regulation von Gewalt. Frankfurt/M.: Campus
In 2017 was published: On retaliation: toward an interdisciplinary understanding of a basic human condition. The volume reflects on and unpacks basic assumptions about the concept of retaliation, which is one of the three constitutive concepts comprising the research agenda of the IMPRS REMEP. In 2018 a paperback edition was published.
