Crime, Punishment, and Responsibility

R. A. Duff

Oxford University Press

This chapter gives Antony Duff's responses to the chapters in this volume under five headings that reflect their respective connections to the various dimensions of a normative theory of criminal law: Responsibility and Criminalisation; Structures of Criminal Liability; Trial and Punishment; Beyond Domestic Criminal Law. Many of the criticisms offered of previous work are forceful, and show (at the least) that there is much more work to be done to develop and defend, and in some cases revise and correct, certain views. But it is argued here that the general lines of the account of criminal law — as an institutional practice whose proper aim in a liberal democracy is to define a set of public wrongs, to call those accused of committing such wrongs to public account, and to require those convicted of such wrongs to undergo suitably communicative punishments — survive these criticisms.
