ABSTRACT

This paper focuses on the necessity for establishing procedures, services and institutions for the support of crime victims, emphasising the importance of such factors for prevention and victim protection, as well as for the planning and implementation of a rational criminal policy. The latter cannot be practically realised if exaggerated attitudes of punitiveness and vengefulness prevail. The regulating role of the state is taken into consideration, as well as the importance of the partnership between central government and decentralised institutions of local communities.

RESUMÉ

Cet article met au point la nécessité de l’établissement des procédures, des services et des institutions d’aide aux victimes de crimes. L’accent est donné à l’importance des facteurs préventifs de criminalité et de protection des victimes pour l’application d’une politique criminelle rationnelle. La dernière ne peut pas être matérialisée si des attitudes punitives et vindicatives prévalaient. Le rôle régulateur de l’État se rend aussi compte ainsi que le rôle du partenariat entre le gouvernement central et les institutions décentralisées des communautés locales.

Research on fear of crime began in the 1960 and continued with an ever increasing interest, so that the 1980s to be considered as its ‘golden age’. These surveys are continued with undiminished interest in our days, while they also evolve methodologically aiming at the necessary interdisciplinary approach and the thorough examination of the phenomenon.

Punitiveness, fear of crime and social views

Christina M. Zarafonitou. in Kury, H., Shea, E. (Eds.) Punitiveness – worldwide perspectives, Bochum: Universitätsverlag Dr. Brockmeyer, 2011, pp. 269-294.

 

This paper focuses on different aspects/dimensions of punitiveness and on the differentiation of the factors correlated with them. Specifically, the punitiveness which is expressed as a demand of making penal sanctions harsher appears to be correlated with the insecurity which stems from “traditional” criminality.

Criminal Victimisation in Greece and the Fear of Crime: A 'Paradox' for Interpretation

Christina M. Zarafonitou, International Review of Victimology, 16 (3), 2009, 277-300.

 

The measurement of victimisation was rare and sporadic in Greece until 2005 when it was included in the EU International Crime Survey (EUICS). Many findings are highly interesting as for example those concerning corruption.

Fear of crime in contemporary Greece: Research evidence

Christina M. Zarafonitou. Criminology (special issue), October 2011, p 50-63.

 

Fear of crime is considered as a complex social phenomenon with important consequences at both personal and societal level. Its semantic boundaries remain unclear and the pursuit of its definition results in a skepticism concerning its conceptualisation.

Criminology as a discipline in modern Greece: Teaching, Research and Profession

Christina M. Zarafonitou. in Sette R. (edited by), Cases on Technologies for Teaching Criminology and Victimology:  Methodologies and Practices, Hershey, PA (USA), IGI Global, 2009, pp.49-65.

 

Although in Greece the publication of books of criminological interest began in the last decades of the 19th century, the subject of Criminology was introduced by Professor Konstantinos Gardikas first at Athens University in 1930 and, then, at Panteios School of Social and Political Sciences in 1932. Some years later, in 1938, the chair of Criminology and Penology was established at the University of Athens. In our days, Criminology is taught mainly at the schools of Law and of Sociology and there is a special Section of Criminology in the Department of Sociology at Panteion University.
