The architecture of security law in the global risk society
Strafrechtliche Abteilung (Ulrich Sieber)
SummaryTerrorism, cybercrime, and other complex crimes are leading to a paradigm shift in crime control on a global scale: A new architecture of security law is emerging, one in which criminal law is coalescing with other preventive legal regimes. These changes can enable a more effective control of crime. However, they often jeopardize the traditional rule-of-law safeguards of criminal law, unless a new architecture of civil rights and liberties is developed simultaneously.
