THE ROLE OF SOCIAL REACTION REFLECTED IN THE DINAMICS OF THE CRIMINAL CODES - PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE -

Crina – Bianca Vereş

 

Abstract

The change in legal norms is closely related to the change in public power, the only social force

capable of making modifications at this level. Thus, criminal law is the result of legislating society’s

reaction to dangerous acts for the values established by the community. These social values are

realities whose importance is given by the role they play in the formation and development of society.

Once these values are undermined, the social order is undermined and thus it needs to be

reintegrated through a set of pre-criminal and post-criminal measures and means, which can be both

judicial and extra-judicial, and through which society has understood to prevent and combat deviant

behavior.

It is therefore interesting to observe how criminal law is redefined by the changes in society's

mentality. From the point of view of criminal code modifications, we can see the traits of a

community given by how they defend their values.
