This volume contains a collection of papers presented at a colloquium on the occasion of Dr. Barbara Huber's 65th birthday as well as three additional essays. The title of the colloquium Are Common Law and Civil Law Moving Closer Together? Understanding and Misunderstan-dings in the Mutual Perception of the Legal Systems was chosen in consideration of Dr. Huber's achievements at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg im Breisgau where she was head of the common law section for almost four decades. Speakers from common law countries and from Germany honoured her contributions and addressed va-rious topics from the point of view of their home countries that distinguish and connect the diffe-rent systems of criminal law: forms and functions of the sources of law, the structure and the elements of crime and perspectives of criminal policy. The additional papers examine the inter-pretation of precedent and case law and aspects of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.
