EuroCrime presents the PROTASIS Project during the 17th Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology (ESC), 13/16 September 2017, Cardiff, UK

The 17th Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology will take place at the Cardiff University from 13th to 16th September 2017.

The title of the Conference is “Challenging ‘Crime’ and ‘Crime Control’ in Contemporary Europe”.

The theme of the conference explores four key challenges for ‘crime’ and ‘crime control’ as phenomena and criminology as a discipline: 1. The rise in intolerance of longer-established but often termed ‘new’ crimes such as domestic and commercial violence against women and men (aspects of which are now badged as ‘modern slavery’). 2. The changes in technologies which (alongside other influences) have impacted on the police-recorded and real rates of some more traditional crimes, requiring a shift in focus, in crime measurement and in public & private ‘plural policing’, as well as on personal transparency to commerce, to other internet users, and to domestic and foreign governments. 3. The simultaneous localisation and globalisation of ‘terrorist threats’, which have generated a shift in securitisation, growing monitoring/restrictions on civil liberties and a closer relationship between the police and security services in European countries and elsewhere. 4. The impact of austerity and public finances on levels of crime and on how we react to crimes, including policing, criminal justice and the sanctioning of offenders.

 

Silvia Ciotti’s presentation is titled: “The PROTASIS project – Police training skills in victims’ support and it will focus on the description of the training approach towards a fair and effective treatment of victims of crime within the penal system of justice.
