Criminal Justice Network is a forum for the international community of criminal law scholars and practitioners who whilst not necessarily sharing a common language do share a common cultural background and today face similar domestic or transnational problems: how to reconcile the need to effectively fight crime whilst observing national constitutional principles and international standards on the protection of human rights; how to shape criminal liability of legal persons taking into account both individual and corporate responsibility; how to successfully tackle corruption and corporate crime through ‘traditional’ law enforcement methods, preventative strategies and the recovery of assets; how to regulate criminal investigation techniques in the light of a technical and scientific evolution that offers new and extraordinary possibilities for establishing facts but at the same time risks compromising fundamental rights; how to uphold the general principles and rights of the criminal process relating to negotiated justice; how to ensure that custodial sentences use resocialization methods that respect the human dignity of the detainee etc.
These questions and others will be discussed on our Network, based on the somewhat bold conviction that language diversity should not be considered a problem, at least not for scholars familiar with works by foreign writers. With this is mind we conceived a website organised around three main languages – Italian, Spanish and English – but open to contributions in languages commonly used by criminal law scholars world-wide, such as French, German and Portuguese. We have taken a gamble on the fact that our readers understand the material we publish and can therefore discuss content in their own language in the context of an international forum.
The website features a blog, destined for online posts, ideally limited to no more than 2-4,000 words each, based on current criminal law topics of supranational concern.
A further section of the website is dedicated to the quarterly review Diritto penale contemporaneo – Rivista trimestrale, published on line since 2011.
Further details on the ideation and the development of this new project are available here.
