Παναγιωτίδου, Ελένη/ Panagiotidou, Eleni

This thesis explores the complex and multifaceted topic of infanticide, tracing its historical development, forms, legal frameworks, and social functions. It begins by defining infanticide and examining its historical development, from its prevalence in ancient times to its modern manifestations. The thesis also considers the global, cultural, and social factors that contribute to infanticide, including maternal behavior and the effects of globalization. The study then turns to legal frameworks for infanticide, examining the laws and regulations surrounding infanticide in different regions of the world, including Greece, Europe, America, and Asia. The thesis also considers the social functions of infanticide, exploring how this practice has been used to maintain social order and enforce cultural norms. The forms of infanticide, including suffocation, drowning, strangulation, blunt force trauma, and poisoning are also examined in detail. The thesis concludes by exploring the bioethical parameters of infanticide, comparing it with other crimes, and considering future directions for research in this area. The thesis highlights the urgent need for effective prevention and intervention strategies for infanticide, as well as the importance of cross-cultural comparisons and bioethical considerations. It argues that by exploring the historical, cultural, legal, and social dimensions of infanticide, researchers can gain a more complete understanding of this tragic phenomenon and work towards developing effective strategies to prevent and intervene in cases of infanticide.
