Crime Prevention in Ibero-America
Crime prevention is one of the highest priorities in global criminal justice systems. In recent decades, Ibero-American states have put ceaseless efforts to develop and operate innovative and evidence-based crime prevention strategies. The special issue of the International Journal of Comparative and Applied Criminal Justice (IJCACJ) will contribute to this area of research and focus specifically on the evaluations of crime prevention programs, policies, or relevant issues in criminal justice systems in Ibero-America.
Potential topics to be considered are:
Empirical work examining theoretical perspectives on crime prevention
Evaluation research on crime prevention programs, policies, or procedures
Police, judicial, or correctional efforts to prevent crimes
Comparative, cross-national studies of crime prevention in Ibero-America
Transnational crimes or cybercrime prevention
Crime prevention in rural areas
Administrative or managerial issues related to crime prevention in criminal justice agencies
Crime prevention through environmental design
Technological innovation in crime prevention
Issues related to the conflicts between crime prevention and the protection of human rights
