Abstract:

The internationalization of our societal relations has even had an impact on criminal law. While criminal law previously fell almost exclusively within the scope of the responsibilities of individual states, internationalization has affected the practice of criminal law for a long time now. Neither terrorism nor gun-running nor drug trade nor child prostitution observe national borders. In such a new frame of cross-cultural legal problems, the paper shows that—insofar as criminal offences can be justified with universal and human rights arguments, as they usually can—moral reasons for an intercultural criminal law can be given.
