A Comparison of Chinese and U.S. Judges' Knowledge and Beliefs about Eyewitness Testimony

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



Abstract:

We surveyed 170 Chinese judges about their knowledge of eyewitness testimony, and compared their answers to 160 U.S. judges. Although the Chinese judges were less knowledgeable than the U.S. judges, both groups had limited knowledge of eyewitness testimony. Compared to the U.S. judges, the Chinese judges were much less likely to believe that they needed additional eyewitness training and that they knew more about eyewitness testimony than laypersons. We will also discuss the impact of culture, legal systems, investigative procedures, and judges’ function on the judges’ responses, and the legal reforms that China needs to implement to reduce eyewitness error.
