(p.1) Introduction
Prevention and the Limits of the Criminal Law

Andrew Ashworth

Oxford University Press

This book arises from a three-year study of Preventive Justice, aimed at developing an account of the principles and values that should guide and limit the state's use of coercive preventive techniques. Central to the project is an interdisciplinary and cross-jurisdictional approach, developed with the collaboration of scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, jurisdictions, and legal cultures. This book is the product of two seminars held at All Souls College, Oxford, at which fourteen leading international scholars in the fields of criminal law, public law, legal theory, criminology, philosophy, and political theory presented and discussed early drafts of what were to become the chapters collected in this volume. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords:   preventive justice, coercive preventive technique, interdisciplinary approach, cross-jurisdictional approach
