European and international criminal law

German criminal law cannot allow itself to ignore influences that stem from international norms and regulations.  Therefore, a gaze into one’s own criminal code or - in particular - into supplementary penal provisions must always be combined with a gaze into the distance: Without international perspectives, German criminal law remains incomplete, especially in contexts of economic criminal law. Verdicts of the EGMR regarding preventive detention after imprisonment or the unlawful provocation to commit a crime, reveal the extensive significance of the ECHR (European Convention on Human Rights); the European Charta of Fundamental Rights, GATT, SDÜ or sanctions by the United Nations Security Council are further pillars of supranational influences on German criminal law. The latter are currently a special focus in the political discussion, as well as in our research. International and European regulations pose challenges to German criminal law, which the Chair addresses.
