Santiago de Compostela, Spain (2019)

The 2019 EAPL conference took place in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, on July 17-20.  The scientific program was addressing the key issues in psychology and law. Different areas of forensic psychology and criminology were  explored, such as eyewitness testimonies, investigative interviews, lie detection and credibility assessment, risk assessment, recidivism, treatment of offenders and victims. Researchers and practitioners from Europe and other parts of the World were invited to share their recent scientific work and field experience concerning new challenges faced in legal processes.
