Desistance, Social Order and Responses to Crime

Today's Security Issues

Edited by: Joanna Shapland, Jacques de Maillard, Stephen Farrall, Alex Groenemeyer, Paul Ponsaers

This book contains a selection of criminology papers that were discussed at the second GERN Doctoral Conference in September 2013, organized by the White Rose Consortium of the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, and York. The book's essays coalesce around three themes: desistance from offending, creating and recreating social order, and responses to crime and violence. As the second volume in this series of research papers, the book continues the ambition of GERN to monitor and disseminate important new studies into European criminology/security issues. The GERN Research Paper series contributes to new approaches and re-evaluates the heritage of social sciences in the security domain. It implies a new openness with regard to other disciplines and to the normative questions arising from the commission of crime and the formal reactions to it by actors in the criminal justice system and beyond. (Series: GERN Research Paper Series - Vol. 2) [Subject: Criminology, Criminal Justice, Security Studies, European Studies]
