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).

Young Penalists Committee 2014-2019

Dear young scholars and practitioners in the field of criminal justice!

One month ago, our team was elected as the new Young Penalists Committee of the Association Internationale de Droit Pénal (AIDP). We are honoured by your support and by your trust. We intend to follow our vision and implement our agenda in the next five years, and thereby make the AIDP Young Penalists Committee to be a valuable, modern and international platform that assists young scholars and practitioners in developing their academic and professional careers.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the events, to working with you on publication projects, to sharing news with you on our mailinglist, and to assisting in making the national groups even more valuable for you. More information on our activities will follow on this site soon - so keep visiting http://www.youngpenalists.org/ !
