Balkan Criminology Network

In 2017 Hungary was honored to arrange the 4th Annual Conference of the Balkan Criminology Network. The conference will take place at the National Institute of Criminology from the 21st of September until the 24th of September in 2017, with the title: ‟Victimology and Victim Protection in the Balkans”.

Please find the final program of the 4th Annual Conference of the Max Planck Partner Group for Balkan Criminology
HERE.


The Balkan Criminology Network (BC Network) has been established in January 2013 jointly by the Max-Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law and the Zagreb Faculty of Law. The aim of the establishment was to create a forum which encourages productive dialogue in between the experts of criminology within the Balkan region, as well as to conduct common criminological regional researches for university lecturers and researchers. There is a strong need to connect and interlink all the present research potential – from the Balkans as well as from outside, due to the fact the numerous activities and projects implemented work fragmented in our region. The BC Network is the first group which is able to represent the region in scientific terms, though it is obvious that we lots of common features both in geographic and political terms, which urges the common thinking mainly in such a sensitive topic as criminology.

So the Balkan Criminology Network initiates common comparative researches. These examinations have already started in different topics. The first issue covered by the BC Network was the history and education of criminology in the Balkan region. In 2015 the scientific group concentrated on the hottest questions of imprisonment, the following year’s discussion went on to describe the phenomenon of violence.

In the year of 2013 and 2014 the Conferences were held at the Zagreb University, in 2015 in Sarajevo at the Faculty of Law, and the 3rd Annual Conference took place at Bucharest University.

TACKLE INSECURITY IN MARGINALIZED AREAS – 653004

___________________________________________________________________ 

  

The MARGIN project coordination activities are intended to contribute to the creation of sustainable modes of cooperation between stakeholders dealing with security issues.

The project provides policy makers with evidence-based tools for developing and assessing strategies targeted at the reduction of insecurity among different demographic and socioeconomic groups. It sets up an international environment for knowledge exchange involving some of the leading EU institutions in Crime Victimization Surveys (CVSs). Along with police statistics, CVSs have become an internationally recognized tool for identifying and analysing factors affecting public and personal perceptions of insecurity.

Perception of insecurity arises as a very heterogeneous concept not limited to actual crime rates but encompassing a wide range of other aspects including personal wellbeing, trust in public institutions, justice and social integration. MARGIN addresses the topic of insecurity by taking into account its heterogeneity.

Based on previous and on-going research activities, the project’s specific aims are:

  1. to create a framework enabling end-users to contrast objective and subjective measures of insecurity (i.e. compare police statistics with CVS data);
  2. to develop and validate a thematic survey with a sample of 15.400 citizens that allows for the assessment of the impact of demographic, socio-economic and socio-geographic variables on the perception of insecurity;
  3. to investigate the socio-cultural determinants of insecurity perception through the implementation of anthropological fieldwork in five EU countries;
  4. to share best practices and outcomes in a final event with 100 key end-users. By deepening the understanding of the root causes of insecurity, MARGIN is expected to foster the creation of community resilience practices empowering citizens (especially among those at risk of exclusion) to better face risks and increase the public and personal perception of security.

PoMigra
Political motivated crime
in the light of current migration flows

 

PoMigra (Political motivated crime in the light of current migration flows – a transnational situation report and development of practical prevention measures) is a joint international cooperation project of eight European countries, initiated by the Federal Criminal Police Office of Germany and funded by the Internal Security Fund from the European Union – German National Program ISF. It intends to support prevention of extremism and deradicalisation as well as improvement of protection of the people from politically motivated crime. The project started with the kick off meeting in September of 2016. In this project, scientific institutes and research units from security agencies are participating, among others the Terrorism/Extremism Research Unit at the Federal Criminal Police Office, Germany, the Masaryk University, Czech Republic and the National Institute of Criminology, Hungary, represented by two researchers, Dr. Szilveszter Póczik and Dr. Eszter Sárik.
