Internationale Korruption und Jurisdiktionskonflikte

Die Sanktionierung von Unternehmen im Fall der Bestechung ausländischer Amtsträger

Claudia Letzien untersucht am Beispiel der USA, Deutschlands und Großbritanniens die Strafbarkeit der Bestechung ausländischer Amtsträger und die verschiedenen Sanktionen, die in diesem Zusammenhang gegen Unternehmen verhängt werden können. Die Autorin widmet sich der Problematik der Jurisdiktionskonflikte, die entstehen, wenn verschiedene Staaten ihren Sanktionsanspruch gegen ein Unternehmen durchsetzen wollen und verdeutlicht, dass diese mit dem Grundsatz ne bis in idem nicht gelöst werden können. Sie schlägt ein Verfahren vor, mit dem ein bestmöglicher Ausgleich der unterschiedlichen Interessen bei der Unternehmenssanktionierung durch mehrere Staaten in Auslandsbestechungsfällen gelingen kann.

Die Verteilung von Kompetenzen, also auch das Verhältnis von Festlegung und Spielraum, von Gebundenheit und Entscheidungsfreiheit, ist von elementarer Bedeutung für Macht und Ohnmacht der am Strafrecht Beteiligten. Und Beteiligte sind hier, auf die eine oder andere Art, alle: Der Bürger als Souverän und Rechtsunterworfener ebenso wie die Akteure im konkreten Strafverfahren. Kompetenzverlagerungen weg vom Souverän hin zu den anderen Beteiligten werfen schwierige Legitimationsfragen auf und betreffen das Verständnis von Recht und Strafe in seinem Kern. Die anlässlich eines Kolloquiums des Instituts für Kriminalwissenschaften der Juristischen Fakultät der Universität Göttingen entstandenen Beiträge nehmen sich der Aufgabe an, den gegenwärtigen Stand des Strafrechts in Hinblick auf Gesetzesbindung und Verfahrensförmlichkeit zu analysieren und zu bewerten.

Heimliche Strafverfolgung und Schutz der Privatheit

English summary: Undercover agents, wiretapping, online searches: Covert law enforcement is increasing. Pierre Hauck compares German law, English law, European Union law and international criminal law. The author provides a clear picture of the completely different functional allocation of the protection of privacy to the laws of criminal procedure, constitutional laws and human rights laws. German description: Verdeckte Ermittler, Lauschangriff, Online-Durchsuchung: Die heimliche Strafverfolgung greift um sich. Dennoch steht die Rechtsfrage des Privatheitsschutzes beim Ermittlungszugriff auf die begehrten Informationen inmitten eines unklaren interdisziplinaren Bezugsfelds: Ist zum Beispiel nur ein Kernbereich privater Lebensgestaltung absolut uber das Verfassungsrecht zu schutzen und lassen sich wirklich alle sonstigen Bereiche der Privatsphare der strafprozessualen Relativierung durch Zugriffsrechte preisgeben? Was gilt gegenuber Nichtverdachtigen und was beim Einsatz neuer Medien? Dabei beschreitet Pierre Hauck einen neuen interdisziplinaren Pfad: Er gleicht Erkenntnissen der Informationsethik und der Sozialphilosophie ab und entwickelt ein System abgestufter Schutzwurdigkeit privater Informationen. Dieses System dient als Grundlage einer Rekonstruktion der Ermittlungsbefugnisse, hauptsachlich mit dem Ziel einer zukunftsweisenden Neuformulierung der gesetzlichen Ermittlungsbefugnisse in der StPO.

Absprachen im Strafprozess werden seit vielen Jahren in Politik, Rechtsprechung und Rechtswissenschaft umfassend und kontrovers diskutiert. Auch das Gesetz zur Regelung der Verständigung im Strafverfahren hat die Diskussion nicht verstummen lassen. Die vorliegende Untersuchung würdigt dieses Gesetz unter Her-anziehung ausgewählter, alternativer Lösungsmodelle aus dem In- und Ausland. Berücksichtigung finden die Rechtsordnungen von England & Wales, Frankreich und Polen. Grundlage für den rechtsvergleichenden Teil ist ein an der Abteilung für Kriminologie, Jugendstrafrecht und Strafvollzug der rechtswissenschaftlichen Fakultät der Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen durchgeführtes internationales Forschungsprojekt.

This innovative new book recognises that, while criminal justice studies is a core component of all criminology/criminal justice undergraduate degrees, it can be a confusing, overwhelming and a relatively dry topic despite its importance. Taking an original approach, this book sets out a series of ten key dilemmas - presented as debates - designed to provide students with a clear framework within which to develop their knowledge and analysis in a way that is both effective and an enjoyable learning experience. It is also designed for use by lecturers, who can structure a core unit of their courses around it. Debates in Criminal Justice provides a new and dynamic framework for learning, making considerable use of the other already available academic key texts, press articles, web sources and more.

In an era of unprecedented change in criminal justice around the world, our failure to take procedure seriously has a terrible cost, allowing reform to be driven by purely pragmatic considerations, cost-cutting or foreign influence. This book proposes a new theory of procedure derived from the three great international trial modes of 'inquisitorial justice', 'adversarial justice' and 'popular justice'.

Understanding white collar crime

* What is the extent and impact of white collar crime? * How can white collar crime be explained? * How is white collar crime controlled? This comprehensive overview of white collar crime begins by introducing the concept, looking at its definition, its identification with class and status, and its development within criminology. The problems of estimating the vast extent of white collar and corporate crime are explored, and some of its major forms are outlined, including fraud, corruption, employment, consumer and environmental crime. Hazel Croall looks at the kinds of offenders who are convicted for white collar offences and at patterns of victimization which involve class, gender and age. She examines the various ways in which white collar crime has been explained and analysed, including individual, organizational and social structural perspectives. The issues surrounding regulation and punishment are explored, focusing on the contrast between white collar and other crimes, and on alternative approaches to its control. This new book is a revised, updated and readily accessible replacement for the author's highly successful White Collar Crime (Open UP, 1992). It includes expanded coverage of corporate crime, and provides an essential text for undergraduate courses in criminology, sociology and law.
