Das „goldene Zeitalter“ der Kriminologie und insbesondere der Kriminalsoziologie in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland begann Anfang der 1970er Jahre. Die heutigen Zeiten für die Kriminologie, Kriminalsoziologie oder die Soziologie abweichenden Verhaltens sind schlecht. Man will heute von diesen Soziologien eigentlich nichts mehr hören – nicht die Politik, aber auch nicht die Hochschulen. So sind diese Lehrstühle größtenteils aus den Universitäten verschwunden, die Kriminologie reduzierte sich zu einer rechtswissenschaftlichen Hilfswissenschaft. Forschungsaktivitäten beschränken sich seit Jahrzehnten auf einige wenige Forschungsinstitute in Deutschland. Welchen Stellenwert könnte die Kriminologie und Kriminalsoziologie in Zukunft noch haben? Die Beiträge des Sammelbandes beleuchten diese Problematik aus verschiedenen Perspektiven und zeigen auf, was die Kriminologie/Kriminalsoziologie für die innere Sicherheit leisten kann und wo zukünftige Aufgaben liegen können.

This book provides an important overview of key criminology and criminal justice concerns in Japan. It highlights similarities between the practice of criminology research in Japan, as well as important differences, with other areas of Asia and with the West. In previous decades, Japan attracted international attention as the only industrialized country where the crime rate declined along with a rise in urbanization and economic development. Currently, Japan still enjoys a declining crime rate (the lowest among major industrialized countries) and a study of criminal justice practices in Japan may provide important insights for other regions. Japan also experiences important contemporary challenges which are shared by other regions: 1. Japan has the highest proportion of people over the age of 60 in the world. For criminology, this means key challenges in the victimization of older people, as well as the challenges of an aging prison population. 2. Besides the United States, Japan is the only developed country that still practices capital punishment, and its rate has been on the rise in the past 20 years. 3. Japan has also introduced new reforms in its law practice, including the introduction of new trial formats. The research in this book provides a helpful overview for scholars interested in criminology and criminal justice in Japan to understand the key issues of concern, and present a framework for future research needs. It will be of interest to researchers in criminology and criminal justice, international studies, Asian Studies, sociology, and political science.

Crime prevention, surveillance, and restorative justice have transformed the response to crime in recent years. Each has had a significant impact on policy, introducing new concepts and reassessing traditional aims and priorities. While such efforts attract a great deal of criminological interest, they tend to be discussed within separate and discrete literatures, rather than as part of a cohesive and concerted effort. Urban Crime Prevention, Surveillance, and Restorative Justice: Effects of Social Technologies examines these emerging trends which are increasingly being contemplated by police, courts, and corrections agencies, and explores how these three concepts are changing national and international policies concerning crime. Going beyond the conventional methods for crime reduction The book addresses these topics within a larger framework of social technology, defined as coordinated action derived from an organized field of knowledge to achieve a particular result. It focuses on efforts aimed at reducing and responding to crime without reliance on the conventional criminal justice practices of police and prisons. The contributors discuss diffusion of knowledge about crime though media and criminological research, surveillance technologies and their effect on crime, and finally, the concept of restorative justice, with an emphasis on juvenile justice and its relationship to social regulations in general. Comprising the contributions of numerous experts in the field of criminology, the book asks "What is the interaction between knowledge, planning, and social repercussions?" The answer to this question forms a valuable basis from which to evaluate proposals for social improvements related to crime.
