The 6th Criminal Law Reform Act of 1998 increased the sentences for carrying ‘dangerous implements’ in the German Criminal Code, but attempts to give a sufficiently precise definition of the concept of a ‘dangerous implement’ have failed. However, there are hardly any considerations on how to draft an ‘appropriate new version of the law’, as suggested by the Federal Court of Justice (Bundesgerichtshof). This anthology documents a research project that compares the regulatory models of nine countries and aims to amend the law appropriately. A legal and historical representation of theft using weapons supplements the reports on each country. The comparative cross section summarises and evaluates the distinct models, and considerations for reform complete the anthology. Its publisher holds the Chair of Criminal Law, in particular European Criminal Law and International Criminal Law, at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), and focuses on comparative criminal law in her research. With contributions by Isidoro Blanco Cordero, Andreas Eicker, Margareth Helfer, Gudrun Hochmayr, Johannes Keiler, Aleksandra Ligocka, Maciej Małolepszy, Wolfgang Schild, Kurt Schmoller, Zsolt Szomora, Stephen Thaman
