Brownlee on Tadros on the Duty View

Kimberley Brownlee (Warwick University) has posted What are the Duties in the Duty View? on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This paper critically examines Victor Tadros’s ‘Duty View’, which he defends in his highly stimulating book The Ends of Harm. This paper shows that, while there are many attractive parts to Tadros’s account including its focus on offenders’ reparative duties, it can be challenged on how it understands the duties of offenders and victims. The best version of the Duty View fits within a non-punitive theory of criminal justice rather than a deterrence theory of punishment.
