Laburpena: Ultima ratio as a normative principle, or a constellation of principles, would be a hermeneutic pre-understanding or pre-interpretative concept to the effect that the definition of a certain socially relevant conduct as a crime and the consequent infliction of a penal sanction on the perpetrator of such conduct is a serious matter to be handled with caution and not to be abused. Similarly, the emergence of new definitions of "European" crimes is a matter of concern. The risk referred to in the rhetoric question of the Workshop �Is the ultima ratio principle at risk?� lies in the non-observance of the principle of minimal intervention, the tendency to criminalise and to bring all or any socially � even politically � undesirable actions under the criminal law, and to use the criminal definition and sanction for purposes and situations other than the strictly necessary � principle of necessity � and universally shared � principle of deep social consensus.
