Victimization and Deviation--Victimización y desviación

The purpose of this session is to discuss the profound consequences of several regional and international trends in violence and criminality. On the one side, criminality by organized crime has produce an unknown number of victims, disappearances and forced migration in countries in Latin America (such as Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia). On the other side, current war conditions on the Middle East are producing a humanitarian crisis with enormous numbers of refugees, displace populations and deep international consequences. Perpetrators run from local organized gangs and transnational criminal organizations, state armed forces or terrorist organizations. So, it´s important to know the state´s legal and illegals answers to theses problems and analyze the camp of the exchanges between social and political actors in cities, regions or metropolitan zones to control the victimization and the social deviation in the context of the economic inequality. We invite papers that discuss theoretical orientations as well as situations in different areas of the world. Comparative proposals are encouraged.

Proposals are welcome in English, Español, Portugués y Francais
