New book by the BC network

An online presentation of the new book by Balkan Criminology network was held on the 3rd of November. Starting at noon (CEST), the book “Mapping the Victimological Landscape of the Balkans" was presented to the broad academic community. This book represents the 4th volume in the research series of the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law.

The volume brings together experts in the fields of criminology, criminal law and criminal justice from across the Balkans to discuss the state of the art of criminology and current crime trends in a region that has thus far largely been neglected by European criminological research. Contributions from all members of the Balkan Criminology Network provide an in-depth overview of facts and background information about criminological education and research and data about crime, general crime trends, and current crime and criminal justice challenges. This makes the book an essential read for anyone interested in the current criminological setting of the Balkans and an excellent starting point for regional or country specific crime research.

The book is available to purchase here.
