Over het boek:
This issue is part of the fourth milestone on the way to the 20th AIDP World Congress dedicated to ‘Criminal Justice and Corporate Business’. It contains the reports on alternative regimes for controlling economic crime and the limits of human rights protection for the International Colloquium for Section III on ‘Prevention, Investigation, and Sanctioning of Economic Crime’, organized by the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg from 18 to 20 June 2018. The present issue is published simultaneously with issue 1 of Volume 90, featuring an introduction and a selection of national reports. The publication of the general report and the recommendations of the colloquium will follow.
The background of the Freiburg colloquium was the evolution towards a new architecture for economic crime control, in which criminal law is increasingly amended and affected by alternative prevention, investigation, and sanctioning regimes (such as administrative criminal law, civil asset forfeiture, and private compliance regimes). The colloquium has analysed, compared, and evaluated such alternative control regimes, focusing on their practicability and their human rights safeguards, in view of developing recommendations for an improved comprehensive economic crime policy. The multi-level comparative methodological approach underlying the colloquium consisted of a comparison of a wide range of national and international legal orders and a functional comparison of the different criminal and alternative legal regimes within and across these legal orders.
