ZiF Workshop

Commercial criminal law, its foundations and its history

Date: 8 - 10 September 2016
Convenors: Wolfgang Schild (Bielefeld, GER), Bernhard Kretschmer (Gießen, GER), Benno Zabel (Bonn, GER)

Modern commercial criminal law has to be understood as the state's answer to its citizens' expectation of regulation and their need for orientation. The current state of development in criminal law stands out especially as it is now subject to the logic of the free market economy, the mechanisms of the political economy and the close connection of economy and public welfare in a previously unknown dynamic. The structural change of commercial criminal law can only be explained and understood by combining insights from economic and social history, sociology of crime and philosophy of criminal justice. From this standpoint, interdisciplinary research on commercial criminal law constitutes a very important contribution to criminal political and dogmatic basic research.
