A first emphasis of my research work is on comparative criminal law, with the goal of formulating general principles for an internationalization of criminal law that surmounts national borders. This work also references the criminal law issues in the direct border regions between states (especially Poland/Germany) ("Criminality in the Border Region"). These studies further require an analysis of the ethical convictions decisive for each national criminal justice system.
A second research emphasis concerns the investigation of the ethical framing conditions for modern developments in medical technology, which increasingly seem to call into question the previously firmly established borders of the human species (as through the creation of so-called chimeras and hybrids, concepts of post-humanism, nanotechnology, etc.).
