Addressing White Collar Crime on a Domestic Level

Show Summary Details

Preview

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.
