Violence Lab members presenting at CJS Conference
Violence Lab members have participated at the 13th Biennial International Conference on the topic of “Criminal Justice and Security in Central and Eastern Europe: Perspectives of Rural Safety, Security and Rural Criminology", held on-line due to the pandemic situation. The topics of the presentations were in relation to the first findings from the Balkan Homicide Study (BHS), with a focus on the (attempted) homicide committed in the rural areas.
The panel “Violence in the Balkans – Rural perspectives" was chaired by Ambassador Dr. Ugljesa Ugi Zvekic, Permanent Representative of the Permanent Observer Mission of the European Public Law Organization (EPLO). The Violence Lab members participated with two presentations. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Anna-Maria Getoš Kalac and Ms. Dalia Pribisalić, mag. psych. presented the BHS results in regards to the difference (and lack thereof) between (attempted) homicide cases when it comes to them being committed in rural and urban areas. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Andra-Roxana Trandafir and Dr. Reana Bezić presented results from the same study, with focus on (attempted) homicide in rural vs. urban area in Romania.
