This issue puts together the proceedings of the AIDP XX International Congress of Penal Law ‘Criminal Justice and Corporate Business’ held on 13th-16th November 2019, organised by the Italian National Group in collaboration with Luiss Guido Carli University. The Congress was the opportunity for over six hundred representatives of the AIDP national groups from all over the world to convene in Rome, Italy – a place that was last home to this meeting crucial for the life of the Association fifty years ago – to finalise the work of the International Colloquia. As the title explains, the 2019 International Congress has focused on the relationship between criminal justice and corporate business, reflecting the work of the AIDP over the past five years on individual liability for business involvement in international crimes, food regulation and criminal law, the interplay between administrative and criminal enforcement, the prosecution of corporations for violations of international law and related jurisdictional issues. The volume is divided into thematic sections and collects the major contributions to the XX International Congress, dealing with issues concerning corruption, financial markets and the role of criminal law; economic crime and the role of new technologies; corporate liability, business integrity and human rights protection; new perspectives related to the criminal justice and corporate business landscape. It also contains the resolutions adopted across the four International Colloquia preceding the XX international Congress. The articles published in this issue testify to the lively and cross-cutting debate that took place during the numerous plenary and parallel sessions of the Congress and that involved representatives of academia, institutions, governments, the judiciary, and the corporate community. Paola Severino is Vice President of the AIDP and President of the Italian AIDP National Group; Professor of Criminal Law and Vice President, Luiss University, Rome. John A. E. Vervaele is President of the AIDP; Professor of economic and European criminal law, Utrecht Law School/ The Netherlands; Professor of European criminal law, College of Europe, Bruges/Belgium.
