Charlotte Conings's doctoral thesis has been published by Intersentia. Her book is called "The traditional and digital search for criminal evidence" and is written in Dutch.

The traditional and digital search for criminal evidence

In her book, Charlotte investigates the Belgian criminal procedure regime for searches for criminal evidence, which is currently fragmented into very detailed subregimes. As this often causes problems and renders evidence gathering inefficient, Charlotte proposes a simplified, updated and clearer comprehensive legislative framework for searches aimed at gathering traditional and digital criminal evidence, both at the national and international level.

The book contains a comprehensive overview of the current legal regime of all kinds of searches for evidence and gives an extensive insight in relevant human rights and fundamental principles, such as the right to privacy, data protection law, professional confidentiality, human dignity and the right to remain silent.
