DEINDIVIDUATION AND CRIMINAL RESPONSIBILITY
Keywords:deindividuation, crowd violence
This contribution assesses the social-psychological concept of deindividuation in the particular context of its use in instances of crowd violence in South African criminal law. Well-established as a mitigating factor, and yet not used over the past couple of decades, the question is posed as to whether this concept still finds application in contemporary South African law and society.
