Positive duties, regulation and the criminal sanction

Abstract:
Examines three categories of the positive duties of citizenship that are enforceable under the criminal law, namely duties to report, duties to prevent and duties to protect. Reviews examples of offences defined as the failure to fulfil a duty within one of these categories. Analyses various accounts of the normative justification for making individuals responsible for crime prevention in this way, as well as some countervailing arguments.
