This is a study of agency in the field of criminal liability,
considering the respective roles of individuals and organisations
and the allocation of criminal responsibility to these different
kinds of actor. The issue of criminal responsibility, which is
informed by both the sociological analysis of conduct and by
ethical considerations of responsibility, provides an important and
revealing focus for discussion. Criminal Enterprise analyses
criminal responsibility through three main types of organisation:
corporate actors in the field of business activity, states and
governments, and delinquent or criminal organisations; each of
which is of contemporary significance. This analysis focuses on
three particular issues:
- the theory of individual and corporate (or organisational)
- the attribution of legal personality, as a particular form of
identity, in theory and across jurisdictions and legal orders
- the internal practice and operation of complex organisations
and corporate actors and how an understanding of this sociology of
organisations should be used in the construction of legal agency in
the field of criminal law.
