Emergencia y garantías (en el pensamiento jurídico de Luigi Ferrajoli)

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

Abstract: Along with Spain and United Kingdom, Italy has suffered a terribleperiod of political violence between 1970 and 1982 with hundreds of killings. In this paper I analyse the origins of Luigi FERRAJOLI’s theory of legalguarantee and his criticisms to Italian legislation against terrorism of that time.Therefore, I shed light on three different understanding of such a theory and Ioffer a review of that legislation that he labelled as «the subsystem of exception».Moreover I will apply this conception of «special» criminal law to two famoustrials against militants of a group of the extreme left. According toFERRAJOLI, these trials have been an instance of the paradigm of political judgementsagainst internal enemies, in which blatant violations of the ideal of fairnessand equal protection under law have occurred. Finally I will present somecritical remarks about FERRAJOLI’s thesis on the conceptual dichotomy betweenemergency legislation and the Rule of law. I will argue that this dichotomy isuseful as a tool for criticising legalistic ideologies of criminal law, but it lies ona misleading premise: that there are clear borders between emergency and ordinarycriminal policies, but often, this is not the case.
