Crime, Deviance and Risk

Thursday, 14 July 2016: 10:45-12:15
Location: Hörsaal 46 (Main Building)
TG04 Sociology of Risk and Uncertainty (host committee)

Language: English

The study of risk-taking and risk-management strategies in the domain of crime and criminal justice provides an invaluable opportunity to explore trends internationally in crime control and the comparative organization and operation of criminal justice systems. 
We particularly invite submissions of papers that critically explore risk and crime in relation to: media representations and crime; human rights violations and state-sponsored crime; surveillance technologies and crime prevention; developments in offender profiling and management; the role of genetics and biotechnologies in crime detection and control; as well as how key sociological constructs such as age, class, gender and race and ethnicity interact with definitions of criminality and the contemporary management of crime.
