I am conducting a PhD in criminal business law at the University of Paris-Panthéon-Assas within the Institute of Research in Business Law and the Institute of Criminology of Paris. My thesis focuses on the criminal liability of companies and its coordination with that of managers. My work intends to develop a critical study of the changes that criminal law has undergone because of “compliance”, i.e the anticipation of criminal risk : privatization of criminal norms, systemic responsibility, and sanction by judicial conventions.
Could you please tell us a bit more about your scholarship/exchange programme?
I am staying in Oxford as a visiting researcher of the Faculty of Law. I have been offered a position at the Center of Socio-Legal Studies and I work particularly within its team “Law beyond the State”.
First impressions of Oxford/the University?
Oxford is undoubtedly the best place to bring a research project to fruition. It seems to be a fine balance between rigorous intellectual work and the enthusiasm of academic life, carried by the centuries of scholars who have gone before us. I am particularly grateful to the Maison Française for providing us with such a working environment.
