The AIDP XX International Congress of Penal Law “Criminal Justice and Corporate Business”, organised by the Italian National Group in collaboration with Luiss Guido Carli University, will take place in Rome on 13-16 November 2019.
The 2019 International Congress will focus on the relationship between criminal justice and corporate business. Due to the growing role of corporations in society, they have become central actors in domestic and international regulation, ranging from issues of corporate social responsibility to criminal liability for corruption and serious human rights violations. The Congress is a reflection of the work of the AIDP over the past five years on individual liability for business involvement in international crimes, food regulation and criminal justice, the interplay between administrative and criminal enforcement and the prosecution of corporations for violations of international law and related jurisdictional issues.
The numerous plenary and parallel sessions of the Congress will also focus on subjects of particular relevance to the international debate, including the fight against corruption, new technologies and economic criminal law, protection of the environment through criminal law, regulation and market control and ne bis in idem, corporations’ responsibilities to protect human rights, the elaboration of genuinely supranational business criminal law, and the harmonization of laws at international level to promote sustainable development. The 2019 International Congress will present an extraordinary opportunity to foster the debate with representatives of academia, institutions, governments, the judiciary, and the corporate community.
We also have the pleasure to announce that His Holiness Pope Francis has honored us by granting a private audience to those participating in the AIDP Congress.
