The article provides an outline of the basic principles
and conditions of criminalisation of interferences with others’ property
rights in the context of a specific context: a liberal, social
democratic state, the legitimacy of which depends primarily on its
impartiality between moral doctrines and the fair distribution of
liberties and resources. I begin by giving a brief outline of the
conditions of political legitimacy, the place of property and the
conditions of criminalisation in such a state. With that framework in
place, I argue that interferences with others’ property rights should be
viewed as violations of political duties stemming from institutions of
distribution. I then discuss three implications of this view: the
bearing of social injustice on the criminal law treatment of acts of
distributive injustice; the expansion of criminalisation over the
violation of distribution-related duties, which are considered
criminally irrelevant under moral conceptions of criminalisation; and,
finally, the normative significance of the modus operandi.
