About the Speaker
Dr Lorenzo Pasculli (LLM, University of Padua, PhD, University of Trento) is is currently Adjunct Professor in Law at the Department of Biomedical Sciences of the University of Padua. He has held research fellowships in Criminal Law at the University of Padua, which established a long-lasting and fertile cooperation with the Department of International, Public and Community Law.
His research interests range widely over global law, juvenile criminal law, biolaw, the role of neurosciences, genetics and robotics in criminal law. His current research is on 'negative measures of global crime prevention', exclusionary measures that compress the rights and liberties of the dangerous or suspect individual even before he has committed any crime at all (pre-crime or 'praeter delictum' measures).
After a first introductory book on the topic, he is now writing a global theory of such measures, in order to highlight how they should be progressively eliminated and replaced by positive measures that, instead of restricting individual prerogatives, enhance and promote human personality and values in the aim of a better integration of the individual in society.
