Misdaad en straf. Een herbezinning op het strafrecht vanuit mystiek perspectief

Research output: ThesisDoctoral ThesisInternal

Abstract

This book critically discusses both the ruling penal theories and the current criminal procedure and reveals their main limitations and shortcomings. This research particularly critically studies the overestimation of the crime control effect and the supposed moral character of criminal law. Besides fundamental criticism of the criminal law, this book also offers an alternative for today’s cynical crime control. Based on the mysticism and related man and world views, a beginning is made for a mystical criminal law that does not revolve around punishment but around restoration of damage and relations. Important concepts in this context are solidarity, remorse, forgiveness and reconciliation. This book goes against the spirit of the age.
