Preparatory Colloquium for the XIXth International Congress of Penal Law (Moscow, 24–27 April 2013)

Full Text:


For most crimes, the Internet in particular or information technology in general is merely one of several means they can be committed. With information and communications technology becoming ever more important and essential to our day-to-day lives, some ‘old’ crimes such as theft need to be re-thought, and ‘new’ crimes such as protecting data integrity need to be considered. This was the broad scope of a conference hosted by the Russian Association of Lawyers and Lomonosov Moscow State University and chaired jointly by Vladimir Komissarov (Russia) and Katalin Ligeti (Hungary) from April 24th to 27th, 2013. The recommendations drafted at this event will set the stage for the Second Section of the XIXth AIDP197 International Congress of Penal Law, which will take place in September 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
