    From the 1980s onwards, France has faced a series of violent riots in urban agglomerations, culminating in the autumn 2005 riots which continued for several weeks and spread to most of France’s major cities.

    In recent decades, prison population increases in many countries have meant that the questions surrounding the scale of imprisonment have attracted more attention than any other issue in the field of criminal justice.

    One reason why terrorist violence is sometimes placed in the realm of megalomania, and psychotics is that most terrorists (arguably jihadist) indeed have a fundamental different worldview and perception of current affairs and therefore are acting on different cognitive premises. However this biased perception is not due to psychological or neuronal deficiencies but is the result of socialization,…

    Although criminologists often explore the occurrence of offences, the patterns of these offences are rarely examined. However, it is precisely these patterns of offences which could help to predict and gain a greater understanding of offending behaviour and its causes as well as contribute to the improvement of prevention. In this project, offence patterns were determined by looking for offenc…
