Download e-book for iPad: Ehrensache Satire: Zur Frage satirischer by Gregor Oppermann

By Gregor Oppermann

Satirische Äußerungen und Darstellungen sind weit verbreitet und geben immer wieder zu - leider nicht nur rechtlichen - Auseinandersetzungen Anlass. Durch den seit Jahren schwelenden sogenannten „Karikaturenstreit“, gipfelnd in den Anschlägen von Paris Anfang 2015, hat die Thematik eine geradezu dramatische Brisanz erlangt. Neben dem religiösen Bekenntnis ist klassischer Stein des Anstoßes aber immer noch die Ehre.

Die Untersuchung beleuchtet kritisch die Handhabung des Satirebegriffs in Rechtsprechung und juristischer Literatur und überprüft nach einer wesensgerechten Bestimmung des Satirischen, insbesondere unter Heranziehung der literaturwissenschaftlichen Beurteilung und der Einschätzung der Satiriker selbst, dem dreistufigen Deliktsaufbau folgend und anhand anschaulicher Beispiele, ob und unter welchen Voraussetzungen eine Strafbarkeit durch satirische Ehrbeeinträchtigungen in Betracht kommen kann. Besondere Bedeutung erfährt in diesem Zusammenhang die Frage nach der Einschlägigkeit der Meinungs- oder Kunstfreiheit und deren Einordnung in die strafrechtliche Prüfung sowie die eines möglichen Unrechts- oder Schuldausschlusses unter Berücksichtigung der spezifischen Funktion, welche insbesondere die politische Satire innerhalb der Gesellschaft wahrnimmt.
