Empirical and Normative Studies into Delinquent Behavior and Criminal Law Enforcement is the joint research programme of the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology and it expresses the context in which our researchers collaborate. The research programme combines criminological-empirical and legal-normative approaches. The programme consists of four research areas:

  • Decision-making in the criminal justice system;
  • Life course and criminal careers;
  • Organised and organisational crime;
  • International crimes.
