Duties of care and the actus reus in substantive criminal law
In the past couple of decades, an extending development seems to take place in Dutch criminal law. Within this expansion, all sorts of duties of care are on the rise. Duty of care provisions – in general – are frequently included in various other areas of law besides the field of criminal law. In these other areas, the duty of care provisions can count on more fundamental attention. However, from a criminal law perspective the attention is minimal. This research aims to fill the resulting gap.
