Na ocasião, o Simpósio contou com a participação de jovens penalistas e de outros especialistas na matéria do direito penal econômico e das empresas provenientes das Américas, da Europa, da Oceania, da África e da Ásia, que permitiram uma rica discussão, sobre o papel do direito penal em um mundo globalizado e em crise, como o que se tem visto e vivido desde 2008. Com representantes de todos os continentes, pode-se dizer que foi possível produzir uma efetiva visão global sobre o tema.

AIDP administrative meetings in Paris - YPC participation and contribution

Every June, the various AIDP administrative bodies meet in Paris to report on past dealings and to discuss the way forward. For this years' meetings which just concluded, several substantial changes and improvements to the scientific and publication strategy were discussed and approved - with many of these changes making AIDP events and activities even more valuable for Young Penalists. Five members of the Young Penalists Committee actively contributed to these meetings with a view to enhance Young Penalist involvement in all aspects of the life of the Association.

More information on the new AIDP strategies - and on future AIDP events - will soon be published on the AIDP website. But for information with specific relevance for Young Penalists, keep visiting this website - we will have much to report soon!

Pope Francis - Private audience with the international scientific associations in the field of criminal law, criminology, and victimology

On 23 October 2014, His Holiness Pope Francis received representatives from international scientific associations in the field of criminal law, criminology, and victimology for a private audience. Within the delegation of the Association International de Droit Penal, three young penalists had the chance to be part of this experience and listen first-hand to an impressive, thoughful and inspiring speech by Pope Francis on current and pressing issues of criminal justice.

Moreover, this meeting must be seen as a starting point for closer cooperation between these international scientific associations, namely

  • the Association International de Droit Penal (AIDP),
  • the International Society for Criminology (ISC)
  • the International Society for Social Defence (SIDS/ISSD),
  • the International Penal and Penitentiary Foundation (IFPS/FIPP), and 
  • the World Society of Victimology (WSV),
as well as with regional associations such as the
  •  Latin American Association of Criminal Law and Criminology (ALPEC).
