Crime and deviance

This session aims to present and discuss theoretical and research contributions that focus attention on two major areas. The first is the analysis of all individual or group behaviours that "deviate" - in formal (criminal) or informal contexts (social deviance) - with respect to the consolidated social norms. The second is those works which explore intervention policies aimed at tackling or preventing emergencies linked to crime. With the aim of encouraging a constructive debate around shared interests, contributions that analyse criminal and deviant phenomena linked to current events and which, as such, can be recognized as social emergencies would be particularly appreciated.

The proposals may concern the following topics (although this list is by no means exhaustive):

  • Organized crime;
  • Terrorism;
  • Juvenile crime:
  • Detention contexts;
  • Ecological analysis of criminal contexts;
  • Dynamics of social conflicts;
  • Social security and risk analysis;
  • Criminal and deviant phenomena linked to new technologies;
  • Victimology;
  • Gender violence;
  • Gambling.
