  • NS Criminal Law: Continuity and Radicalization?
  • Lecture

Kai Ambos sees Nazi criminal law as a racist, nationalist and totalitarian continuation of the authoritarian and anti-liberal tendencies of German criminal law at the turn of the century and the Weimar Republic. The NS criminal law – according to one of the author’s core theses – neither came out of nowhere nor completely disappeared after 1945, which seamlessly led to today’s attempt to reconstruct the identity of this Germanic myth through the political movement known as the “New Right”.

Kai Ambos is Professor of Criminal and Criminal Procedure Law, Comparative Law, International Criminal Law and International Law at the University of Göttingen and since April 2018 Executive Director of the Institute for Criminal Sciences and Judge at the Kosovo Special Tribunal.
