“Unwept, Unburied?”: Towards a Communicative Theory of Closure

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

"Closure” has become a rhetorical justification of the death penalty, legitimizing victim participation and a more therapeutic judicial focus, but engendering opposition in the process. This article first summarizes how legal scholarship has not effectively analyzed “closure” and why most scholars oppose pursuing “closure” through criminal proceedings. Thereafter, it analyzes how courts and victims’ families regard “closure.” The article then elucidates a theory of closure as a communicative concept composed of two interdependent behaviors: intervention and reflexivity. Finally, this article considers the ramifications of applying a communicative theory of “closure,” including the need to institute post-sentence victim allocution.
