Guest lecture by Researcher Moa Lidén, Uppsala University, Department of Law: Confirmation bias in criminal cases

Confirmation bias refers to the human tendency to search for information which supports preexisting beliefs. In a legal context, this may lead to severe consequences. Moa Lidén has studied the phenomenon in the decision-making among the police, prosecutors and judges. She has also reflected how mistakes could be prevented in the different stages of criminal procedure.

The lecture will be held in English.

The lecture is open for everyone interested in the topic and can be followed with Zoom connection:
