Globalization, Criminal Policy, and Courses of Criminal Law in the Context of Risk Society

This research aims at examining the impact that globalization has on criminal policy and criminal law in the so-called 'risk society.' Such a problem constitutes one of the greatest concerns on the current criminological agenda due to the dangers these trends pose for the respect of the citizens' fundamental rights and guarantees, traditionally interpreted as limits to ius puniendi under the rule of law. The theoretical analysis represents basic level research whose main result is the characterization of today's criminal policy and criminal law. It concludes with some proposals that are deemed useful to shape a coherent and reasonable criminal policy, which can be generalized to any context governed by a democratic criminal system.
