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
