Criminal Law, Security Provisions and Diversity from a Legal Historical Perspective
- Start: Apr 12, 2018
- End: Apr 13, 2018
- Organisation: Thomas Duve
- Location: Instituto de Investigaciones de Historia del Derecho, Buenos Aires, Argentina
The transnationalisation of law, new technologies and the increased demand for the consideration of diversity in law all confront criminal law with fundamental challenges. European-style criminal law, which is based on a systematic, dogmatic stringency and the idea of uniformity, is subject to a particular form of urgency. Other world regions have different historical experiences when it comes to an overlap of repressive and preventive government actions, reactions to social diversity and other forms of social control. Even the current legal-political discussions are, for this reason, carried out within a context of different horizons of experience. This exploratory workshop will be held in Buenos Aires in cooperation with the Cluster of Excellence »The Formation of Normative Orders«. Its aim is to bring legal history and criminal law theory and doctrine, mainly from Argentina and Germany, into a dialogue on these issues.
