FIDUCIA at the 13th European Society of Criminology (ESC), II International Conference 2013

FIDUCIA will be present at the 13th European Society of Criminology (ESC) II International Conference to take place in Budapest on 4-7 September 2013.

The 13th ESC II International Conference will be on the subject: "Beyond "Punitiveness": Crime and Crime Control in Europe in a Comparative Perspective" and will be hosted at the ELTE University, Faculty of Law, Department of Criminology, Hungarian Society of Criminology.

"In the past decade, criminological literature has been abound with sparkling funeral oratories about sociological theories of crime and causation as well as the criminal policy guided by it. “Punitive turn” was the word of the day, at least in most criminological publications on the topic. It seemed generally accepted that incarceration rates would rise and crime control would become harsher as the irreversible process of the politization of crime control and criminal justice gradually took hold in every European country. However as the dust settled, it became increasingly clear that this was not the case. While the pessimistic predictions might have proved to be right in certain countries, they do not appear to be valid in others. The conference will focus on what factors influence the trends in crime control and actual policymaking mechanisms in various countries."
