Tiberiu Viorel Popescu (Acad. Andrei R?dulescu - Institute of Legal Research of the Romanian Academy) has posted Fight Against Crime - Criminological Perspective (RAIS Conference Proceedings - The 13th International RAIS Conference on Social Sciences and Humanities) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
The fight against crime aims to prevent the impact on social values. This preventive approach must be based on the principle of legality and should be carried out on the basis of pre-established procedures. At present, criminality has a diverse typology that implies not only a permanent adaptation and diversification of procedures, but also a rigorous definition that must reflect as accurately as possible the hypothesis, disposition and sanction for each type of crime. From a criminological perspective, a series of concepts such as high crime, organized crime, terrorism, drug trafficking, or trafficking in human beings can easily highlight defective definitions. However, there are a number of concepts and philosophies surrounding these types of crime. We propose a review of how crime is defined in order to assess to what extent the identified operational definitions can or must imperatively be improved.
