Scientific workshop of the research project „Balkan Homicide Study“ developed through our Max Planck Partner Group in association with Max Planck Institute was held from 26st to 28th November 2017. It was organised by the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg. The main aim of this empirical research is to analyse the most severe violent crimes and, among others, to test (un)founded stereotype about Balkan as an especially violent and ‘wild’ European region.
