A definition of human dignity is extremely difficult and controversial to achieve. However for the criminal lawyer such a task should be somewhat alleviated by the «light» of a kind of «truth» stemming from prisons, namely from an environment where dignity is put under extreme stress and a tight bundle of principles have been devised in order to keep inhumanity constantly under check. Such hints arising out of penitentary law and experience suggest a widening of the role of criminal law in bolstering human dignity well beyond the protection of a mere kantian idea of dignity, however paramount its consideration it may be, as expressed in the Italian and German constitutional judicature (e.g. in the Bundesverfassungsgericht decision on the use of force against plane hijackings) and in the condemnation of any kind of torture. Scope and aim of criminal law in this field should be more far-reaching and encompass a protection against the many lacks of empowerment suffered by human beings even in the most advanced western societies (epitomized and symbolized by the feeblenesses of people living in prisons), including those arising from epistemic injustices, which put some of the major hindrances to human development and rights.
