Abstract:Combating white-collar crime appears on the agenda of any legislator. Since major commercial enterprises now operate transnationally, the efforts to prosecute and punish business crimes are increasingly shifted onto an international or as in Europe supranational level. An international business criminal law proper, however, does not exist as yet. The author examines whether in light of domestic experiences in combating white-collar crime international criminal law should be extended to specifically cover business behaviour. Or would it be better to refrain from this approach in case it is perceived as just another example of symbolic politics.
