Abstract

This chapter examines how the field of behavioral ethics – the study of how people make and perceive ethical decisions and behavior – could influence the theory and doctrine of criminal law and criminal punishment. It will do so by exploring a number of contexts in which applying behavioral ethics principles yield normative insights into criminal law and punishment doctrines.

Keywords: behavioral ethics, criminal law, punishment theories
