New Titles Criminology, Criminal Justice & Criminal Law Maklu-Publishers Governance of Security (GofS) Research Paper Series In today’s globalized society, an international exchange of ideas and views is indispensable within the field of social sciences, including criminology and criminal justice. The research group Governance of Security (GofS) fosters contemporary international discourses on issues of crime and crime control. In 2008, GofS started a research paper series, combining theoretical and empirical articles on issues reflecting the research activities of GofS. This research group is a collaboration between Ghent University and Ghent University College in Belgium. GofS concentrates its research around the study of administrative and judicial policy that has been developed with respect to new issues of crime and insecurity. The editorial board of the Gofs Research Paper Series consists of Prof. Dr. Marc Cools, Prof. Dr. Sofie De Kimpe, Prof. Dr. Brice De Ruyver, Prof. Dr. Marleen Easton, Prof. Dr. Lieven Pauwels, Prof. Dr. Paul Ponsaers, Prof. Dr. Tom Vander Beken, Prof. Dr. Freya Vander Laenen, Prof. Dr. Gudrun Vande Walle, prof.

In this volume, the reader is oriented to questions of a methodological and theoretical nature. The contributions in this volume are divided into two parts. Part 1 “Expanding Horizons - Conceptual & Methodological Approaches To Research In Hard To Reach Areas” explores a range of methodological and conceptual issues bound together by a common problematic: how to conduct research into populations, organizations and concepts that are ‘hard to reach’ or difficult to measure and define. Part 2 “Crime & Offending In Context” concerns the empirical study of crime and offending in differing specific contexts with a focus on both theoretical and practical applications.

In this book, the reader is oriented to questions concerning the actors of penal administration. The contributions in this volume are divided into two parts. Part 1 “International Perspectives on Criminal Justice & Criminal Law” contains a range of articles which explore contemporary developments in this area from a comparative, institutional or policy perspective. Part 2 “Policing The Rapids Of Change” concentrate on the changing nature of the police task, its context and how police organisations should react to these developments. For detailed contents:

Journal of Police Studies The Journal of Police Studies is a quarterly which is oriented towards high standard, quality contributions on policing issues and phenomena that are of interest to the police. This journal appears in the form of theme numbers (topicjournals), in which the respective topics are approached from a specialist and (if required) multidisciplinary point of view. Once a year, an issue is being published in English in order to reach an even broader audience than the regular Dutch issues that have their main origin and audience in Belgium and The Netherlands. The editorial board sees to the quality of the articles offered to the journal. All articles are being judged anonymously and externally, through an international double blind peer review. The editorial board also develops a proactive policy in view of the composition of thematic volumes. For that purpose, guest editors are approached in Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. The journal results out of a collaboration between the Belgian Centre for Police-studies (CPS) and the Dutch Society, Security and Police Foundation (SMVP). General Editors Paul Ponsaers (Department of Criminal Law and Criminology / Ghent University) Lodewijk Gunther Moor (The Dutch Society, Security and Police Foundation, SMVP) Editor in chief Elke Devroe (Department of Criminal Law and Criminology / Ghent University)

offers a lot of valuable opportunities to react or respond to problematic anti-social behaviour. Restorative ways of dealing with these situations take place within the normal ambit of police peacekeeping, allowing officers to initiate problemsolving interventions and to deal with the problematic aspects of non-conforming behaviour as well, minimising its damaging social and material effects on victims. Actions to restore social order and to respond to victims’ complaints and points of view contribute, in a win/win approach, to early problem-solving interventions, which can avoid the use of the criminal justice system. Such an approach optimizes the synergy provided by careful community-oriented police action and promotes community and civic interests. This volume describes and conceptualises the incorporation of these restorative practices within day-to-day policing in the Low Countries, together with some practices from England and Wales.

Institute for International Research on Criminal Policy (IRCP) The Institute for International Research on Criminal Policy (IRCP) was founded in 1992 as the Research Group Drug Policy, Criminal Policy and International Crime and got its final name in 2002. It is the intention of IRCP, which is integrated in the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology of the Faculty of Law of Ghent University, to conduct and promote internationally relevant scientific research regarding criminal policy issues. The field of research of IRCP focuses on three main themes: justice and home affairs in the EU, international and comparative criminal law and criminal justice, an Belgian criminal law and criminal justice.

Restorative Policing CPS Volume 2009-11

Typical for the scientific activity developed by IRCP is its pursuit of a synthesis of fundamental and empirical research on the one hand, and policy proposals on the other. The implementation of research in scientific service and consultancy is an essential part of the group’s activity.

Describing and analysing restorative practices within policing shows how police work on the beat, in particular,

The research activities are carried out by a coherent group of strongly motivated researchers, reinforced with the professional contribution of external collaborators. An ad hoc multidisciplinary team is composed for each research project.

A. Mennens, W. De Wever, A. Dalamanga, A. Kalamara, G. Kazlauskaité, G. Vermeulen, W. De Bondt One of the main deficiencies in the EU area of freedom, security and justice, is the lack of cross-country comparable data on crime and criminal justice. The importance of progress in this domain, especially in the context of the identification of best practices in the fight against crime, has been identified on several occasions. The main difficulty lies in the comparability of data, or in other words the guarantee that exchanged data is understood in the same way by all actors. In March 2007, the European Commission, DG JLS, launched a call for tender for a “Study on the development of an EU level offence classification system and an assessment of its feasibility to supporting the implementation of the Action Plan to develop an EU strategy to measure crime and criminal justice” – The Crime Statistics Project (CSP). This book contains the final report of that Project, conducted by Unisys Belgium and IRCP in the course of 2008-2009.

and the cooperation in criminal matters between the judicial and law enforcement authorities of the European Union (including Europol and Eurojust) and the United States of America on the other hand. This book offers answers to the central question whether the European Union complies with her own standards of data protection in these internal relations and in the transatlantic cooperation in criminal matters.

clarifies the scope between EU competence and national sovereignty with regard to defining criminal behaviour. With this book, EULOCS is bench-marked as a reference index for serving various needs in the broader EU criminal policy area, having the potential to significantly enhance the internal coherence thereof. The proposed reference index, with offence definitions inherent to it, fundamentally addresses the problem created by the organic elaboration and adoption of legal instruments at EU level, making reference to certain offence categories the scope or defi nition whereof is most often either not clarifi ed or indicated, or left to the discretion of the individual member state(s).

Essential Texts on International and European Criminal Law G. Vermeulen

This pocketbook comprises the principal policy documents and multilateral legal instruments on international and European criminal law, with a special focus on Europol and Eurojust as well as on initiatives aimed at combating international – or organized crime or terrorism. It is meant to provide students as well as practitioners (judicial and law enforcement authorities, lawyers, researchers, ...) throughout Europe with an accurate, up–to–date and low–budget edition of essential texts on these matters. This compilation, has been brought up to 1 August 2008.

Restorative Justice in Niger Delta - Kekong Bisong Justice I. A. Umezulike (OFR), Professor of Property Law and Chief Judge of Enugu State on this publication: “This book deals, in a most commendable manner, with topical and contemporary issues in conflict management and resolution. Its greatest appeal lies in the thorough-going or comprehensive treatment of the latent legal and socio-economic issues in conflict management undiscovered and untapped here-to-fore. It is crucial that the author has entered an arena with a fresh eye in an effort that promises to capture an international audience. All the fluctuating guidelines and principles that sometimes generally upset rapid conflict management and resolution seem settled upon this exposition. Obviously in this book, choice of words, grammar and syntax received adequate attention. And the result is a readable book of immense authority which evinces a collaboration of painstaking research and practical experience. Almost everywhere in the book, the author’s discussion of issues was enlightened and enlightening. I am glad to be associated with this sterling and critical scholarship, which I am certain, will be a leading light in the field. I commend the book to every shelf.”

New Directions for Criminology

Notes from Outside the Field.

Ronnie Lippens, Patrick Van Calster (eds.)

A substantive law approach to the EU internal and transatlantic cooperation in criminal matters between judicial and law enforcement authorities

The ‘new’ theories that since about the latter half of the 1970s have come to be known as post-structuralism never really reached the mainstream of criminology and criminal justice studies. In this book an effort is made to introduce undergraduate students, in criminology and in related fields of study, to these new theories. The book includes contributions from scholars and researchers who work predominantly in fields outside criminology and criminal justice but who make a considerable attempt to show how poststructuralist thought might be applicable to problems and issues that usually form the staple of criminology and criminal justice studies. The contributions are divided between papers that elaborate on the usefulness of particular theories, perspectives and concepts for criminology and those that outline particular research objects or themes which could be of interest to those working within the broader criminological and criminal justice community.

In this doctoral thesis three specific elements are joined in one research for the first time. The protection of personal data in criminal matters as a first element is studied in two relationships: the cooperation in criminal matters between judicial and law enforcement authorities of the European Union member states (including Europol and Eurojust) on the one hand

Data Protection in EU and US Criminal Cooperation

Els De Busser For detailed contents:

The new framework decision on data protection in criminal matters that entered into force early 2009 is a significant element in this research alongside the agreement concluded between the European Union and the United States on mutual assistance in criminal matters of which the entry into force is equally planned for 2009. The current circumstances are thus the perfect background for this research that also reflects on the policy proposals of the European Union on justice and home affairs for the period of 2010-2014.
