Punishment as instrument of state response to crime and upcoming changes in the Criminal Code of Serbia

dc.creatorKolarić, Dragana
dc.description.abstractAfter the adoption of the Criminal Code, the system of punishment in the criminal legislation of Serbia has met the standards that exist in other European countries. Despite certain changes and amendments in recent years, which are in line with the strengthening of retributivism, we point out that their main focus is still utilitarian, i.e. justification for the reform is in social utility.

The author first analyzes the basic postulates of the Criminal Code of 2005 relating to the system of punishment, and then the provisions that were the subject of changes and amendments in 2009 and 2012 (changes and amendments to the Criminal Code of 2013 were not related to criminal sanctions). Given that the part concerning criminal sanctions in criminal legislation represents a broad field, especially the part that refers to the concept and types of punishments and sentencing, and that it is more often studied as an independent field, it is clear that it is a very significant part of the Criminal Code.
