  • Ementa. This issue is devoted to comparative criminal law and in particular to questions of the general part. All kinds of comparative perspectives are welcome: Legal comparisons may be undertaken for practical purposes, e.g. to gather or to test ideas in order to solve a legislative problem so that foreign law serves as a kind of normative laboratory. Comparative work may also serve purely theoretical purposes, e.g. a better understanding of a normative field or of one’s own domestic law by contrasting it with different solutions to the same problems. In order to be fruitful, any comparison presupposes a certain degree of similarity between the legal orders selected. The doctrines of the general part of criminal law are good candidates for comparative work because they are mostly based on some variation of the universal grammar of practical philosophy. Papers may cover any aspect of e.g. causation, intent and error, negligence, guilt, justification and excuse, participation, omission, attempt, concursus delictorum etc. General principles may also be illustrated by special provisions and there is no limit which (and how many) legal orders are examined. Articles on methodological problems of comparative law are equally welcome if they are in some way connected with the subject matter of general principles of criminal law.
