Abstract

This essay argues that the design and evaluation of legal reforms require an expert, empirical, local and multidisciplinary approach. From criminology, an auxiliary discipline of criminal law, several practical, theoretical and normative lessons can be drawn; for example, the way it addresses the issue of information gathering. It also refers to its theoretical insights for the conceptual debate on crime and suggests methodological guidelines for the evaluation the impact of legal reforms.
