Criminal law is no longer the exclusive domain of national legislatures. International criminal law has established itself as a new field of law, and national penal legislation has become the object of European regulation. The science of criminal law, traditionally accustomed to think within the boundaries of national law, is now faced with new tasks of analysis and systematization. Since the use of national legal concepts will create confusion in the emerging international legal discourse, an attempt is made here to grasp the notions of criminal intent and mistake in a set of neutral analytical instruments as a precondition for a transnational doctrine of mens rea and the necessary comparative work. This includes an appraisal of the impact of analytical philosophy and cognitive psychology on criminal law doctrine.

Complicity in International Law

This book examines how international law prohibits state and individual complicity. Complicity is a derivative form of responsibility that links an accomplice to the wrongdoing of a principal actor. Whenever a legal system prohibits complicity, it must address certain questions as to the content and structure of the rules. To understand how international law answers these questions, this book proposes an analytical framework in which complicity rules may be assessed and defends a normative claim as to how they should be structured. Anchored by this framework and normative claim, this book shows that international criminal law regulates individual complicity in a comprehensive way, using the doctrines of instigation and aiding and abetting to inculpate complicit participants in international crimes. By contrast, international law's regulation of state complicity was historically marked by an absence of complicity rules. This is changing. In respect of state complicity in the wrongdoing of another state, international law now imposes both specific and general complicity obligations, the latter prohibiting states from aiding or assisting another state in the commission of any internationally wrongful act. In respect of the ways that states participate in harms caused by non-state actors, the traditional normative structure of international law, which imposed obligations only on states, foreclosed the possibility of prohibiting the state's participation as a form of complicity. As that traditional normative structure has evolved, so the possibility of holding states responsible for complicity in the wrongdoing of non-state actors has emerged. More and more, both the wrongs that international actors commit, and the wrongs they help or encourage others to commit, matter.

House of Commons - Justice Committee: Post-legislative Scrutiny Of Part 2 (Encouraging Or Assisting Crime) Of The Serious Crime Act 2007 - HC 639

The Government presented its Post-legislative Scrutiny of the Serious Crime Act 2007 Memorandum to the Home Affairs Committee and Justice Committee in November 2012. The parts of the Memorandum falling within the Justice Committee's remit were a) Serious Crime Prevention Orders and b) Part 2, in particular, offences of encouraging or assisting crime in terms of prosecution and interpretation of the sections by courts and the CPS. There is concern about the trenchant criticism that Part 2 of the Serious Crime Act 2007 received. In addition, Part 2 was the subject of appeals to the Court of Appeal. The report concurs with the academics who wrote that the sections are complex and difficult to understand for lawyers, let alone for defendants, jurors and other lay-people working in the criminal justice system. It raises some key concerns and questions about the purpose of post-legislative scrutiny. It is considered that where the substance of an Act or part of an Act is to create or revise criminal offences it is appropriate for questions of a purely legal or technical nature to be considered. The latest judgment in the case of Sadique may allow the legislation to settle into accepted use and interpretation. However, the Ministry should conduct a further and full post-legislative assessment of Part 2 in 2016. If, in the meantime, the number of appeals on Part 2 increases, the Ministry should consider bringing forward legislative proposals for revising, or even replacing, Part 2 to meet the purpose of the legislation in a less tortuous fashion

Many academic criminal lawyers and criminal law theorists seek to resolve the optimum conditions for a criminal law fit to serve a liberal democracy. Typical wish lists include a criminal law that intervenes against any given individual only when there is a reasonable suspicion that s/he has caused harm to the legally protected interests of another or was on the brink of doing so. Until there is conduct that gives rise to a reasonable suspicion of criminal conduct by an individual, s/he should be allowed to go about his or her business free from covert surveillance or other forms of intrusion. All elements of crimes should be proved beyond any reasonable doubt. Any punishment should be proportionate to the gravity of the wrongdoing and when the offender has served this punishment the account should be cleared and good standing recovered. Seeking Security explores the gap between the normative aspirations of liberal, criminal law scholarship and the current criminal law and practice of Anglophone jurisdictions. The concern with security and risk, which in large part explains the disconnection between theory and practice, seems set to stay and is a major challenge to the form and relevance of a large part of criminal law scholarship.

Geldansprüche bei Persönlichkeitsverletzungen durch Medien

English summary: In this comparative study, Normann Witzleb examines the systems of monetary remedies for invasions of personal privacy under German and English law. In which circumstances can a plaintiff claim monetary and/or non-monetary remedies for the wrong suffered? What is the relationship between compensatory and restitutionary remedies? Is there a legitimate role for punitive remedies? The author argues in favor of a more open recognition of the economic components of personality interests. He makes practical suggestions as to how the law of remedies could be developed in order to achieve more comprehensive protection in this area. German description: Eingriffe der Medien in den privaten Lebensbereich stehen seit einiger Zeit wieder im Blickpunkt der juristischen Fachwelt, der politischen Institutionen sowie der breiten Offentlichkeit. Die zunehmende Zahl von Personlichkeitsverletzungen aus kommerziellen Motiven hat dazu gefuhrt, dass die Rechtsprechung fur diese Falle nunmehr deutlich hohere Geldentschadigungen zuspricht, um so dem Anreiz zu Personlichkeitsverletzungen entgegenzuwirken.Normann Witzleb setzt sich in seiner rechtsvergleichenden Arbeit kritisch mit dieser an der Pravention orientierten Rechtsprechung auseinander und untersucht, ob es nicht wirksamere Wege gibt, monetare Rechtsbehelfe zum Personlichkeitsschutz einzusetzen. Er zeigt, nach welchen Kriterien und in welchem Umfang das deutsche und englische Recht bei personlichkeitsverletzenden Medienveroffentlichungen Geldersatz zuerkennen, wie schadens- und bereicherungsrechtliche Anspruche begrundet werden und in welchem Verhaltnis sie zueinander sowie zu nicht-monetaren Rechtsbehelfen stehen.Normann Witzleb kommt zu dem Schluss, dass Anspruche auf Herausgabe des durch den Eingriff erzielten Erloses fur die Zwecke der Pravention und der Gewinnabschopfung vielfach besser geeignet sind als die bisher von beiden Rechtsordnungen favorisierte Losung uber die Geldentschadigung. Der verstarkte Einsatz erlosorientierter Rechtsbehelfe wurde sich nicht nur schlussiger in die zivilrechtliche Dogmatik einfugen, sondern auch erlauben, die materiellen und immateriellen Folgen von Personlichkeitsverletzungen differenzierter zu erfassen, und damit schwierige Bemessungsfragen vereinfachen.

One of the most exciting developments in philosophy in the last fifty years is the resurgence in the philosophy of action. The concept of action now occupies a central place in ethics, metaphysics and jurisprudence. This collection of original essays, by some of the most astute and influential philosophers working in this area, covers the entire range of the philosophy of action. Topics covered include the nature of actions themselves; how the concepts of act, agent, cause and event are related to each other; self-knowledge, emotion, autonomy and freedom in human life; and the place of the concept of action in criminal law. The volume concludes with a major essay by one of America's leading authorities in the philosophy of law on 'the 3.5 billion dollar question': was the destruction of the World Trade Center one event or two?

The justification and commensurability of punishments is a central problem of all state and social philosophies. This essay is concerned with theories of retribution and theories of general prevention of crime, and works out its own point of view in a combination of the concept that the purpose of punishment is to deter the offender and resocialization, and derives from this a plea for a system for dealing with criminals which respects their human dignity.
