In this chapter I shall seek to demonstrate how the approach of critical criminology can also be effective for analysing the mafia phenomenon— not only ‘common ’ criminals and crimes — starting precisely from the problem of definition. For the purposes of the analysis, I shall mainly refer to the Italian mafia phenomenon, in view of the specific legislative provision contained in the Italian Criminal Code in Article 416 bis.

2017

Abstract

In this chapter I shall seek to demonstrate how the approach of critical criminology can also be effective for analysing the mafia phenomenon— not only ‘common ’ criminals and crimes — starting precisely from the problem of definition. For the purposes of the analysis, I shall mainly refer to the Italian mafia phenomenon, in view of the specific legislative provision contained in the Italian Criminal Code in Article 416 bis.
