Sažetak
This volume, for the first time, brings together experts in the fields of criminology, criminal law and criminal justice from across the Balkans, in order to discuss the state of art in criminology and crime in a region that has so far been largely neglected by European criminology. Contributions from all members of the Balkan Criminology Network, including Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, and Turkey, provide an in-depth ‘Mapping of the Criminological Landscape of the Balkans’. This ‘mapping’ includes important facts and background information about criminological education and research, as well as crime analyses in terms of data about crime, general crime trends and, in particular, current crime and criminal justice challenges. This makes the volume an essential reader for anyone interested in the current criminological setting of the Balkans and an excellent starting point for regional or country specific crime research. The volume begins by providing a general overview of the region, the subject matter, the current challenges and the likely benefits of a coherent regional criminological research approach through a ‘Balkan Criminology’. The ‘Marking of the Territory’ chapter analytically describes the Balkans, not only as a unique historical region, but also as a religious and legal territory, as well as a region of migration and violence. Next, the Balkans are defined as a criminological region sui generis, the purpose, goal, background and methodology of the volume are introduced, and key findings from the country analyses as well as further areas of research are critically discussed. This discussion is closely linked to the question of criminological capacity building and networking in the Balkans with the long term goal of creating a sustainable ‘criminological landscape’. Finally, the volume undertakes ‘An Expedition into the Criminal Landscape of the Balkans’ by presenting the current research projects of the Max Planck Partner Group for Balkan Criminology (MPPG). Here, the MPPG’s junior researchers outline research design, methodology, first empirical findings and major issues of their studies, thereby providing a closer look at the actual research agenda of the MPPG.
