Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses how researchers created comparability by making a comparative object; a tertium comparationis. The researchers constitute a "young researchers group" that concerns itself with the comparative ethnography of criminal proceedings. The chapter focuses on an analysis of the process of writing a paper on comparison ('the comparative paper'), which this research group published in 2007. The focus of this comparative paper rests on how the different fields produce strong statements in criminal cases - statements that make it through the different procedural stages up to the final judicial decision. In order to construct and explicate a boundary object we needed an analytical concept of what was actually failing.

Keywords: boundary object; comparative object; tertium comparationis
