The ROXIN Alliance co-hosted the III International Symposium for Young Penalists in collaboration with the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich and the German National Group of the International Association of Penal Law, from the 12th – 14th of June 2013 in Munich, Germany.

The symposium was attended by eighty participants representing more than thirty countries spanning all five continents. Leading international organizations including the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Basel Institute of Governance, World Economic Forum, and the International Anticorruption Academy also participated in the symposium through their representatives. Key note addresses at the symposium were delivered by Prof. Dr. Claus Tiedemann, Dr. William Laufer (Wharton), and Dr. Klaus Moosmayer (Chief Compliance Officer, SIEMENS), merging both sides of corporate criminal liability – academics and practice.
