Abstract

While the Nordic countries are listed at the top in most international rankings of gender equality and citizens’ feelings of security, studies on the prevalence of sexual victimisation present a different picture, suggesting that the very countries that have invested much in establishing gender equality actually see a high prevalence of sexual violence. This book sheds light on the phenomenon and construction of rape and other forms of sexual violence within the Nordic region, exploring the ways in which rape and sexual violence are dealt with through criminal law and considering governmental policies aimed at combatting it, with a special focus on legal regulations and developments. Thematically organised, it offers new research on perpetrators, victimhood, criminal justice and prevention. Multi-disciplinary in approach, it brings together the latest work from a range of scholars to offer insights into the situation in the five Nordic countries, asking how and why rape and other forms of sexual violence occur, whilst also addressing the timely issues of online sexual cultures, BDSM and the grey areas of sexual offences. As such, it will appeal to scholars of sociology, criminology and law with interests in gender and sexual violence.

Abstract

The history of criminal justice in modern Germany has become a vibrant field of research, as demonstrated in this volume. Following an introductory survey, the twelve chapters examine major topics in the history of crime and criminal justice from Imperial Germany, through the Weimar and Nazi eras, to the early postwar years. These topics include case studies of criminal trials, the development of juvenile justice, and the efforts to reform the penal code, criminal procedure, and the prison system. The collection also reveals that the history of criminal justice has much to contribute to other areas of historical inquiry: it explores the changing relationship of criminal justice to psychiatry and social welfare, analyzes representations of crime and criminal justice in the media and literature, and uses the lens of criminal justice to illuminate German social history, gender history, and the history of sexuality.

Abstract

Crime and the fear of crime are issues high in public concern and on political agendas in most developed countries. This book takes these issues and relates them to the contribution that urban planners and participative planning processes can make in response to these problems. Its focus is thus on the extent to which crime opportunities can be prevented or reduced through the design, planning and management of the built environment. The perspective of the book is transatlantic and comparative, not only because ideas and inspiration in this and many other fields increasingly move between countries but also because there is a great deal of relevant theoretical material and practice in both the USA and the UK which has not previously been pulled together in this systemic manner.

Abstract

The subject of this study is the criminal prosecution of insulting remarks about the emperor in the Habsburg monarchy in the second half of the 19th century (1852-1918). The first chapter discusses the historical development of the protection of state and sovereign through penal law that resulted in the penal code of 1852. Then the norms on the protection of state and dynasty in this penal code and the settings of the criminal proceedings code are discussed. As lese majesty was a politically disputed matter, also the discussion on the planed reform of the penal code is given the necessary attention.The main part of the book examines which insulting remarks on Francis Joseph were in fact prosecuted by the Regional Court Salzburg. Special attention is paid to the question what motivated the defendants to insult the emperor and what conclusions can be drawn from their remarks regarding the relation between authority and subjects. In this context is also analyzed how the authorities got to know about the insulting remarks, which sentences where imposed by the Regional Court and from which factors the sentences where influenced. Also the social composition of the offenders is analyzed. On the basis of criminal statistics the study investigates, which social and political factors influenced the numbers of convictions for lese majesty. It can be demonstrated, how political and economic developments influenced public opinion and how on the other side the provision on lese majesty could be exploited to suppress political opposition. The last chapter is dedicated to the suppression of critical comments on the emperor and the dynasty in newspapers and other products of the press. Based on a description of the legal framework, the study analyzes how censorship was operated by the authorities in the crown-land Salzburg. The book shows which comments in newspapers lead to confiscations and which political developments or events within the royal family gave rise to critical comments.

Abstract

Racist police checks are part of everyday life in Europe. They make it dramatically visible who is not considered a fellow citizen. While much of the dominance society finds this racist practice normal, more and more people are no longer prepared to accept it without resistance. The volume brings together scientific, artistic and activist contributions to the social backgrounds and modes of action of racial profiling and the possibilities of intersectional anti-racist resistance. The focus is on Switzerland, supplemented by perspectives from authors who are familiar with the German context.
