Course Description

The debate on the justification and the purpose of the sentence - of the prison sentence in particular - represents one of the most traditional and fascinating paths of the criminal law culture, which poses inescapable as well as crucial basic questions, around which the very “raison d 'etre ”of law and the criminal trial, as well as the penitentiary institution. The seminar aims to promote a moment of reflection on the ultimate meaning of criminal justice; a reflection that has a cultural value and serves also to understand trends and innovations in the penal system, some of which are incorporated into the law. Moreover, through contributions from disciplines other than legal ones - history, philosophy, sociology and criminology - the seminar will consider how the crisis of the idea of ​​remuneration was followed by a crisis of the idea of ​​prevention, general and special. Finally, through special working groups, discussions will be promoted between magistrates with different functions, making use of the experience of an international project on restorative justice (Re-Justice) which involves the Italian School for the judiciary together with universities and other European judiciary schools.
