The Multifactorial Process of Radicalisation to “Jihadi” Fundamentalism

The paper analyses the main factors that trigger radicalisation to “jihadi” fundamentalism from a socio-criminological and geopolitical perspective. The concept of radicalisation and its causes in its potential progression towards terrorist violence will be examined. The conclusion of the paper will pinpoint the flaws of the current strategies of counter-radicalisation and counter-terrorism and will outline some possible preventive ways forward.

This paper critically analyses Law No. 21,240 of 20 June 2020, which introduced several reforms to Chile's Criminal Code in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. Criticism focuses on issues related to the origin of the reform, but especially on the use of the criminal instrument as a panacea to solve complex social problems.

The Videoconference Hearings in the Days of Covid-19. Problems of Legality and Immediacy (part 1)

This paper addresses the problems that may be generated in relation to the principles of legality and immediacy in the event that the criminal oral hearing is arranged through remote connection platforms. This analysis is carried out taking as a reference the regulation contained in the Chilean Criminal Procedure Code. A second part (to be published) will deal with other related issues (principle of confrontation, control of evidence, communication between the accused and defence counsel, publicity and impact of the accused's agreement to hold this type of trial and the collision with the right to be tried within a reasonable time).

COVID-19 and Objective Imputation of its Contagion

The spread of Covid-19 poses a real and serious risk to people's health and lives. In view of this situation, it is appropriate to analyse the possibility of criminally charging the carrying out of a contagious conduct when its suitability to cause the death of a person has been demonstrated. This work contributes to the legal qualification of the contagion of a disease like Covid-19 for which it resorts to the development of the theory of objective imputation.
