Join us on Monday, 15 May 2023 for a discussion of the book 'Transitional Justice in Italy and the Crimes of Fascism and Nazism' with author Paolo Caroli.
'Transitional Justice in Italy and the Crimes of Fascism and Nazism' presents a comprehensive analysis of the Italian experience of transitional justice examining how the crimes of Fascism and World War II have been dealt with from a comparative perspective. It also explores the legal qualification and prosecution of the actions of the Resistance. Particular focus is given to the Togliatti amnesty through comparisons to the wider European post-WWII transitional scenario and other relevant transitional amnesties, allowing consideration of the intense debate on the legitimacy of amnesties under international law. At a time marked by the resurgence of racism, neo-Fascism, falsifications of the past, as well as the desire to amend the faults of the past, the Italian unfinished experience of dealing with the Fascist era can offer helpful lessons.
Paolo Caroli is Lecturer of Criminal Law in the Faculty of Law at the University of Turin, Italy. Previously, he was Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in the Faculty of Law at the Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany.
