The paper aims to define the contents and the features of foreseeability, poiting out the normative factors undermining its implementation.

Abstract

The paper aims to define the contents and the features of foreseeability, poiting out the normative factors undermining its implementation. Foreseeing criminal law consequences of one’s behaviour cannot be, for any individual, simply a mathematical calculation, but on the other hand it cannot become – as often happens – a sort of prophecy. After the introduction, two examples of non-foreseeability of criminal liability will be offered, in the area of financial crime. Having touched the poor quality of criminal provisions in an area where typical and atypical domestic and international legal sources are more interrelated, some remedies will be outlined in order to ensure foreseeability of criminal liability, both from a comparative perspective and from the very nature of domestic nullum crimen sine lege.
