Forms of Justice: The Tango and the Rumba

Professor Elisabetta Grande suggests that for comparative study of some procedural systems we should replace the distinction between adversarial and non-adversarial systems with the distinction between procedural systems that resemble the tango and those that resemble the rumba. See E. Grande, "Dances of Criminal Justice: Thoughts on Systemic Differences and the Search for the Truth," in J. Jackson, M. Langer & P. Tillers, eds., Crime, Procedure, and Evidence in a Comparative and International Context: Essays in Honour of Professor Mirjan Damaska.
