The Formation of Transnational Criminal Law Regimes
Research project of the 243 Cluster of Excellence "The Formation of Normative Orders"
The project is dealing with the formation of transnational criminal law regimes in the 18th and 19th century which were shaped in international treaties, national law, international expert discourses and various state practices. The research is focusing on specific areas and activities of transnational legal interaction – extradition, political asylum, judicial and police co-operation – covering a variety of divers actors involved. A main objective is to analyze the interdependences between transnational and national norms, the actual state practices and international discourses, conferences and associations to explain the emergence of legal pluralism, fragmentation and “regime collisions”. Of central interest is to explore political crimes which were regarded as a cross-border security threat and functioned as a narrative to further advance the formation transnational criminal law regimes.
PhD-projects involved in this project deal with “Transnational Criminal Law Regimes (1871-1914). The Responses of German and European Legal System to Political Violence” (Tina Hannappel) and “Political Crimes and Transnational Criminal Law Regimes in the 19th Century.
