Ancillary role in Criminal Economic Law

Ancillary role in Criminal Economic Law

The project focuses on the ancillary role of Criminal Law, concerning the assumptions of punishment (unfair and culpable), covering the elements of remission of the criminal type, the agent's error in these cases, the risk allowed in the basic regulation for criminal typicality, the impact of the definition of elementary norms by extra-penal instances. In the case of sanctions, the ancillary role involves the concept of sanction and the application of the ne bis in idem principle. There are also questions about the need to finish the administrative process for a criminal prosecution, the reciprocal effects of criminal and extra-criminal decisions, the limits of sharing, validity, and evidence valuation.

Criminal guardianship of the company and in the company

The project focuses on the company as a space for the practice of crimes and as a victim of criminal behavior, comprising two axes. The first axis connects with the general part of Criminal Law, covering the themes of individual criminal responsibility of directors for crimes committed within the company, and the criminal responsibility of the company itself. The second axis goes back to the special part of Criminal Law and considers the company as a victim of crimes, such as the asset infidelity of its directors, the unfair administration, and the practices of private corruption.
