Hadar Dancig-Rosenberg and Yuval Feldman (Bar-Ilan University/UC Berkeley School of Law and Bar-Ilan University - Faculty of Law) have posted A Behavioral Ethics Perspective on the Theory of Criminal Law & Punishment on SSRN. Here is the 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.
